Welcome to
Qualicum Beach Streamkeepers

Thanks to everyone who came out to clear invasive plants from our beautiful Grandon Creek. We cleared piles of Lamium, Laurel, Ivy, Himalayan Blackberry - all invasive plants that are choking out our native species in the riparian regions of our streams. Please be careful as you discard your garden waste and cuttings. Invasive plant species spread easily (just think of all the Scotch Broom we see along the roadsides in the spring!)

This photo of the visiting orca pod was taken from the Sea-side Nature Pavilion - a rare treat and privilege to see!

Congratulations to Streamkeeper, Pat Jacobson on being named “Citizen of the Year” in Qualicum Beach for her tireless work on the new pavilion and interpretive signage.

Our pavilion can now be called “award winning” as it won "Honourable Mention in the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board Award for Design in the Community category.

We are very appreciative of the generous donations from the Oceanside Community.
