Improving juvenile summer rearing habitat for salmonids, creating spawning grounds for Chum and
removing floating mats of invasive reed canary grass to rejuvenate our local streams.
Project Watershed is currently restoring two local creeks: Glen Urquhart and Mallard. Both creeks flow into Dyke Slough on the north side of the K’ómoks Estuary, support salmonoids, and have been severely impacted by agricultural practices and upstream urban development.
Mallard is a local creek that flows into the Dyke Slough on the north side of the K’ómoks Estuary and supports coho salmon and cutthroat trout. It has been severely impacted by agricultural practices and upstream urban development.
The crew worked at Glen Urquhart every day last week! Construction of the riffles was in full swing and was the main focus for Cain and Renée. Jay, who has been leading the restoration of the creek, provided help and guidance during each step.
On October 23 and 24th, 2020, volunteers helped reclaim 150 meters of streamside along Mallard Creek.
