The Streamkeepers Program has been developed in response to the concerns of the many volunteers working on stream 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.
Streamkeepers Courses are available through the Pacific Streamkeepers Federation at http://www.pskf.ca/

Everyone can participate in watershed stewardship.
The Stewards originally formed as a group of residents called the “Dippers” in 1994 due to concerns over the health of local streams. In 1998 the Stewards incorporated as a non-profit society and took on the name “Millard-Piercy Watershed Stewards”.
