Keeping it Living Award

In Spring 2018 BCWS was awarded the Comox Valley Project Watershed’s Keeping It Living Award.  The honour was bestowed because the “work of the dedicated Brooklyn Creek Watershed volunteers adds a vital chapter to the widespread community effort to restore and protect watersheds and habitat that are part of our K’ómoks Estuary.”

BCWS is thrilled to have received this award.  It culminates work that was carried out over a 12-year period – 2005 to 2017 – where BCWS worked with the Town of Comox and Current Environmental Ltd. to improve rearing and spawning habitat for salmon stocks and develop erosion counter measures to stabilize sections of the stream.  A secondary goal of the project was to improve pedestrian access within municipal greenways in Comox.

The Directors of BCWS extend their gratitude to Project Watershed for recognizing the work done in the Brooklyn Creek Watershed.

Storm Drain Fish Painting

BCWS has initiated a storm drain fish painting activity in the watershed. We did our first trials in Crown Isle area of Courtenay and will be expanding our activity in other areas of the watershed. Thanks to Jack Stevens for taking on the coordination role. The marking of storm drains with the yellow fish is an important reminder to people that what goes down the storm drain on the street goes into Brooklyn Creek.
Anyone (including families and friends) interested in joining the team may join in by contacting BCWS (see Contact Us).
