Learn to be a Streamkeeper

 

Help protect the watersheds of Campbell River by learning to measure and monitor the health of our streams.

February 26 28, 2016

 

Streamkeepers is a fun and educational 2 day introduction to stream stewardship.  This weekend course offers individuals an opportunity for hands-on learning and practice of stream stewardship activities such as stream surveying, conducting water quality testing, and stream invertebrate identification.  Come and learn what Streamkeepers do.

No experience is necessary, just a willingness to get your hands wet! 

Participants that successfully complete the course will be awarded a Streamkeepers Certificate. We'll put you in touch with local Streamkeepers groups so you can help insure the continued health of our Campbell River watersheds.
