What is the Yellow Fish Road program?

This educational program creates community awareness about the impact of household hazardous waste on the health of Hamilton Harbour.

Presented by BARC in partnership with Trout Unlimited Canada and Hamilton Industrial Environmental Association, Yellow Fish Road™ volunteers mark storm drains with painted fish symbols and stickers that carry the message “Only Rain Down the Drain”.

Students also deliver flyers to neighbourhood mailboxes to spread the Yellow Fish Road™ message. Your Yellow Fish Road™ event will include an in-class presentation in addition to the outdoor marking activity. It is recommended to allot 1.5 to 2 hours for this program.

*Please note that this program is weather dependent, and can be canceled in the event of inclement weather.
