Kennedy Lake Welcome Sign (2003)

In 2003, WFT launched a public awareness campaign about the Kennedy Lake watershed at Clayoquot Sound.

Although the Kennedy Lake watershed at Clayoquot Sound has played an important role in providing salmon for the region for many years, its significance was largely unknown to visitors.

The role of the watershed in providing salmon for region probably doesn't occurs to most visitors. Neither does the history of the watershed, the former greatness of the Clayoquot fishery or the efforts of many groups to study the system and bring the fishery back.

WFT launched a public awareness campaign centred on the Kennedy watershed and its significance to Clayoquot Sound and its people. In early 2003 the project unveiled the Kennedy Lake Welcome Sign on Highway 4.

In partnership with Regional Aquatic Management Society, Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation, Hupacasath First Nation, Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council, Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce, Parks Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and BC Ministry of Highways.

With support from the Vancouver Foundation, Fisheries Renewal BC, Weyerhaeuser Ltd. and the Vancouver Aquarium Foundation.
