Creek Mascot, the SARA-listed Morrison Creek Lamprey

The Morrison Creek Streamkeepers (MCS), are an active group of watershed residents and community members dedicated to preserving, rehabilitating and promoting public awareness of the Morrison Creek watershed. MCS worked for several years gathering biophysical data on the watershed and teamed up with the Comox Valley Project Watershed Society to complete a streamside landowner contact program in 2000.

As well, MCS worked with the Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk (an Environment Canada program) to complete works aimed at ensuring the longterm health of the Morrison Creek Lamprey. They usually deploy a smolt fence every year to check the health of the fish population and take census of the salmonid population for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). As much as possible, MCS volunteers are also actively involved in land-use planning at all levels of government. They have also conducted restoration projects with the guidance of both DFO and BC Ministry of Environment with details of their latest projects available in the Archives.
