More projects upcoming for Morrison Streamkeepers

Morrison Creek Streamkeepers will soon be busy with two restoration projects designed to improve fish passage and increase available fish habitat.

In partnership with Current Environmental, Morrison Creek Streamkeepers has been awarded grants from three agencies for in-stream rehabilitation this August. The projects will improve fish and lamprey passage at the culvert on the Comox Logging Road and the old wooden weir at the foot of Second Street in Courtenay.  Rock riffles will be constructed to make natural stepped pools while stream banks will be stabilized with rooted logs.

Streambank planting in the fall and watershed walks are other important components of the work.

For more information about the projects, or to volunteer, the public is encouraged to contact the group at morrisoncreek@yahoo.ca,  or visit the website at morrisoncreek.org

Morrison Creek Streamkeepers are happy to have new members, whatever their level of involvement.
