Welcome to
Qualicum Beach Streamkeepers

A Tribute to the late Faye Smith Rosenblatt

Above photo was taken from the Pavilion. This is an example of a healthy ecosystem and a great example of Streamkeepers are working to achieve. The salmon probably spent some time in our local streams before it moved into the ocean. The salmon is being utilized as food for the river otter(s), with the remaining parts providing food for the waiting eagles. The waste from these activities will enhance the ocean vegetation which, in turn, will provide food and cover for fish and other organisms. Photo at top right shows annual smolt count.

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.
