Friends of Cowichan Creeks

Friends of Cowichan Creeks

The Friends of Cowichan Creeks program began in November 2010. We have been working to monitor, protect, and enhance creeks throughout the Cowichan Region by facilitating the work of streamkeeper groups. On this page, you will find links to courses we have offered and pictures from some of our streamkeeper events and work parties.

New to Friends of Cowichan Creek Program!

This year we are excited to be developing Best Water Ways: Watershed Literacy, Stewardship, and Restoration Place-based learning project resources for educators both near and far. This initiative is in it’s conceptual phase and we are eager to share more about it once our funding is secure.

Over the past 8 years, Friends of Cowichan Creek is grateful to have received financial support of the Government of Canada provided through the Department of the Environment, the Vancouver Foundation Endowment Fund for Environment, Pacific Salmon Foundation, G & G Fund, RBC Blue Water Project and TD Friends of the Environment, the Brink Family Fund, the Junior League of Greater Vancouver Legacy Fund, the McGill Family Fund, Kaatza Foundation, RBC Blue Water Project and Telus. For 2012 through 2014 we acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia along with RBC Blue Water Project, and the Pacific Salmon Foundation.

You will find information below about some of the courses we offer as part of this project. We also host work parties regularly, so be sure to check out the “Upcoming Events” section of our homepage.
