The City of Sault Ste. Marie


Yellow Fish Road

Trout Unlimited Canada's Yellow Fish Road™ Program is a national conservation education initiative. Since 1991, thousands of Canadians have become leaders in their community by raising awareness about pollution entering local waterbodies through stormdrains. You can learn how to protect your local watershed and make a difference in your community's water quality with this fun environmental action project!

The City of Sault Ste. Marie has become an approved Yellow Fish Road partner, and have partnered with the Girl Guides of Canada - Ontario Council, Community 34 to launch the program locally. Approximately 40 Girl Guides painted yellow fish near selected catch basins on June 8, 2015 for the first ever Yellow Fish Road Day in Sault Ste. Marie.

On June 7, 2016, the City is once again participating in the national Yellow Fish Road program, in partnership with Trout Unlimited Canada and local community groups. Over 60 participants from the Sault Ste. Marie Girl Guides and Pathfinder units and their leaders will paint yellow fish near storm drains and distribute informative door hangers, with the aid of City staff and volunteers from the St. Marys River Remedial Action Plan and the Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority as a reminder that anything entering a catch basin flows directly to nearby water sources, untreated. This year's event takes place on city streets near the St. Theresa Catholic School area from 6-8 p.m.

For more information on how your group can participate, contact Madison Zuppa at m.zuppa@cityssm.on.ca or call 705-541-7000 ext. 283.
