Practice wise stream management on your own property – even if you don’t live right by a stream, following these tips from Fisheries and Oceans Canada can help protect our streams.
Build a raingarden – raingardens can slow the flow of water into our creeks, reducing erosion
Build a salmon-friendly garden – check out this great brochure from Seattle Public Utilities for great tips for salmon-friendly gardening including lists of beneficial plants
Encourage good construction practice – all storm drains lead to streams so it is very important to make sure water leaving construction sites is clean.
Volunteer – If you would like to help in creek restoration, count smolt, survey invertebrates, feed coho fry, educate the public on practices to protect our streams, spot spawners or help with grant applications, please check out our volunteer opportunities!
