The Streamkeepers Program has been developed in response to the concerns of the many volunteers working on stream and lake enhancement projects. In spite of volunteer efforts and government regulations, development pressures from our expanding population continue to threaten our aquatic habitats. Everyone, from residents to land developers, foresters, and farmers, needs to become aware of how important good watershed practices are to the long term protection of our environment. Streamkeeper activities most often take place at specific times during the year.

 

Some events are dictated by the arrival, presence or departure of spawning or rearing . Some activities do not take place in the stream itself, and can occur at any time of the year.

 

View some videos that have been contributed by various streamkeeper groups.

 

A streamkeeper is someone who has taken an active interest in preserving and enhancing their local waterways. They are willing to learn more about their streams and lakes, and partner with other groups that have a similar focus, as well as all levels of government.

 

Who are Streamkeepers?

People from all walks of life. Professionals, retirees, students, anyone who has an interest in the environment. Some groups have regular meetings, and organize events for the full year. Others simply do tasks at the time they need to be done
