Our Vision:The protection and restoration of the streams, streambeds and riparian zones that foster biodiversity in the Slocan Valley Watershed.
The Slocan River Streamkeepers work to promote community stewardship through education, collaboration and action. We collect data that gives us information about local creeks and the river, do school field trips and presentations and restore river habitat The Streamkeepers and local high school students collect data and information that gives us important information about local creeks and the Slocan River. Streamkeepers give presentations, do field trips, explore and learn about aquatic life with elementary students. Streamkeepers partner with other watershed groups in the Kootenays to do basin wide monitoring. On the ground, we work locally, planting trees, building fences, restoring river habitat, and completing scientific assessments of the river and riparian areas.
