Streamkeepers

Nunns Creek Stewards

Mission/Purpose: To work with local residents, non-profit organisations, and local government to help restore the ecological integrity of Nunns Creek. To act as a collective voice for homeowners on issues of development in the watershed.

The Nunns Creek estuary partially encompasses Campbell River Indian Band Reserve Land and joins up with the Campbell River's mouth. Compared to the other community watersheds, Nunns has the largest section of industrial and commercial lands. A city owned Nature Park helps to break up the development but the stream has been irreversibly affected. The upper watershed's rural development has been designated for higher density housing. The group takes an active role in city planning and has completed numerous field projects including stream enhancement, fish stock assessment and invasive plant control.

Oyster Bay Streamkeepers


Mission/Purpose: To preserve, enhance and protect the nine small streams within the Oyster Bay area.

The nine streams and many wetlands of the Oyster Bay area are important contributors to Campbell River's fish and wildlife habitat. Issues surrounding this coastal area include loss of wetlands, streams and coastal ecosystems. Streamkeepers have actively worked on extensive restoration and enhancement projects.



Simms Creek Stewardship Society


Mission/ Purpose: To work with local residents and businesses, other non-profit organizations and all levels of government to maintain and restore the existing ecological integrity of Simms Creek, its tributaries and associated wetlands.

The watershed is a blunt division of forest and urban sectors that require a wide mix of stewardship activities. The group has addressed key needs like controlling invasive species, counting fish, augmenting water supplies and testing water quality. The recreational trails in the Beaver Lodge Forest Lands require constant attention to invasive species, garbage and trail deactivation.

Storie/Woods Creek Streamkeepers


Mission/Purpose: To work with local residents, other non-profit organisations, and local government to help restore the ecological integrity of small creeks on the east coast of Vancouver Island from the Oyster River north to the Salmon River.


This group shares its expertise between other groups and continues to take an interest in other streams throughout Campbell River. The directors take on specific projects to reach enhancement and educational goals. They have managed to work closely with their large landowners (Storie Creek Golf and Country Club and Timberwest Forest Company) and rural residents to achieve their goals. A number of projects of note are: nine weirs to augment low summer flows and maintenance of fish fences for stock assessment. Their funding comes primarily through the Pacific Salmon Foundation and Fisheries & Oceans Canada.

Willow Creek Watershed Society

Mission/Purpose: This group is committed to the stewardship of all natural resources within the Willow Creek watershed.

Watershed features are the Trust lands sandwiched between urban development, the Campbell River airport, and the privately owned forest lands at the headwaters. Willow Creek has never been stocked with hatchery-raised salmonids so it is an indicator stream for other urban small streams on the east coast of Vancouver Island. The group works on projects like stock assessment, habitat enhancement, watershed research and planning, and stewarding the Willow Creek Nature Trust.
