Are you interested in learning more about the health of our local streams and creeks?
Project Watershed is hosting a Streamkeepers Training workshop this September for $50. The Streamkeepers Program is a series of modules which provide a protocol for assessing stream health.

Upon successful completion of training a certificate is awarded to each participant.

Photo documentation of forage fish spawning habitat is valuable in our aim to protect these important nursery areas. Photos provide a story of each individual beach over time.
PSL – a Pumpkin Spice Latté or a Pacific sand lance? To some people, a PSL is both. Either way, PSL season is fast approaching. The leaves are changing, warm drinks are on the menu, and the liquid sunshine (rain) is welcomed after such a dry summer. Project Watershed is gearing up for our Fall/Winter sampling.
This video follows a forage fish field day, from sampling to the counting of eggs, in the late fall of 2019.
The Comox Valley Conservation Partnership is hosting the basic beginners Streamkeeper Course from October 25 to 27 with Michele Jones.
