Saanich and the Friends of Mount Douglas Park held its salmon carcass transplant event on Saturday.

Provided by the Goldstream hatchery, dozens of participants planted about 100 dead salmon in the creek and forest, which helps feed nutrients into the ecosystem surrounding what was a once-sterile creek. Douglas Creek now sees a few spawning salmon each year.
