The 2016 Salmon Habitat Restoration Program (SHaRP) is well underway with seven team leaders (university students) and 18 crew (high school students). Dillon staff have overseen the day-to-day delivery of SHaRP for 20 years. Since SHaRP’s inaugural year in 1996, Dillon has employed over 600 students and the program has provided valuable employment and career-oriented experience to Surrey youth.
Each year the program has a specific theme which the students work within. This year’s program has two teams - the Environmental Outreach Team, focusing on community engagement, environmental education and communications; and the Field Team’ focusing on watershed enhancement and restoration activities and agricultural stewardship initiatives.
