RUTH FOSTER

This film began as a writing project on the subject of heroes when I was nine years old. It showcases the work of a retired teacher and the co-founder of a salmon hatchery. It was my first foray into volunteering and its where I learned the importance of preserving and protecting nature and the living things that call it home. The hatchery and Ruth continue to play a significant role in my life and I am grateful to my grade four teacher, Mrs. Whiffin who introduced me to the magic of filmmaking and the medium it provides for educating others.
