How cultures view nature and the environment shape how we dwell within the environment. When examining wild salmon and their habitat along the Fraser River watershed it is clear that these perceptions have had a detrimental impact. Therefore, this thesis attempts to balance the needs of people and salmon while addressing current perceptions of nature within the context of a salmon eco-park. Through examining key relationships along the Vedder-Chilliwack River, a major Fraser River tributary, this thesis provides a framework for salmon habitat, while also providing opportunities for co-learning about salmon, habitat, and harvesting.
