CRD Watershed Maps

In which watershed do you live, work and play?
How does land use and our activities on the land impact the health of our watersheds? 

British Columbia's capital region is comprised of over 300 watersheds that are over 100 hectares in size, numerous smaller watersheds, plus natural and urban influenced drainage areas which drain to the shoreline without a creek.

Stewards of the Future Toolkit

Stewards of the Future is an exciting new youth initiative of the Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. The program provides funding and support for high school teachers and other educators to go on field trips, visit local sites of interest, and engage in stewardship projects in their communities. This guide has been created for teachers, leaders and students to inspire and support them in becoming involved in hands-on, place-based explorations of their communities, and the stewardship issues relevant to them.

Gorge Waterway Nature House

The Gorge Waterway Nature House, located in Esquimalt Gorge Park, is the perfect place to explore your local aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. This area is culturally, historically, and biologically significant and includes access to a beach, an urban forest, and a restored creek. The Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations traditionally used this area for food, medicine, and spiritual practice. The region was also historically popular for regattas and swimming, and is home to a great diversity of aquatic animals and birds.

Bringing the Ocean into Schools… and Schools to the Ocean!

Seaquaria brings local marine life into the classroom to let students get up close and personal with some of their aquatic neighbours. Our goal is to build a society that cares about the environment both emotionally and in practice, and to provide the basis for enduring learning skills in an ever-changing world.
