More than $14,000 will be granted by the Pacific Salmon Foundation to three Nanaimo region stewardship organizations.

The Nanaimo Fish and Game Association will receive $8,500 for use in assessing and repairing damage done to spawning areas of Haslam Creek.

The Nanoose Streamkeepers Society will get a grant of $1,500, which will go toward a habitat assessment project that will look to identify endangered fish in the watershed and examine ways to improve habitat.

The Gabriola Lands and Trails Trust will use the $4,078 it receives to increase public awareness and support for salmon habitat by engaging elementary school students in streamkeeping activities.

The grant money was partially raised at the foundation’s annual dinner, dance and auction, which took place Nov. 15 at Beban Park.
