West Vancouver is home to 22 creeks and tributaries, 10 of which are salmon bearing listed here.
The characteristics, uses and project history of these creeks are described in the watershed summaries below.
Our volunteers collect and monitor the water temperature of eight creeks – Brothers, Cypress, Eagle, Hadden, Larson, Lawson, McDonald and Rodgers – using automated instream loggers. Water temperature is a key limiting variable to salmonid distribution and survival, and an indicator for processes occurring in the creek. At the links below you will find a collection of yearly temperature graphs representing daily average temperatures.
We also perform water quality testing twice a year on the same eight creeks – testing for dissolved oxygen, pH and turbidity.
