The Yellow Fish Road™ program is a Green Street approved, nation-wide environmental education initiative launched by Trout Unlimited Canada. The program is a fun, participatory way to teach the importance of clean water and to demonstrate how the decisions of one person can make a difference on a whole community, by painting yellow fish near storm drains and distributing fish-shaped brochures.
The program is important because in most municipalities water and materials entering storm drains do not get filtered at a water treatment.
KCCA staff are trained and licensed to deliver the program to any group of children. Staff will teach the children about their local water supply and help them to explore how hazardous wastes can find their way in the water source. The program also allows children to “make a difference” by going into their community and painting yellow fish near storm drains. The yellow fish serve as a reminder that any materials entering the storm drain can affect the water source. Participants also distribute “fish hangers” on doors in their neighbourhood to educate the community about the Yello Fish Road Program™.
