Volunteer Cowichan

Volunteers in action...supporting our delicate ecosystem for the coming generationsFry rescue operations began in earnest today as crews visited several tributaries to Cowichan lake. Some of our worst fears were confirmed.

Meade Creek is dry and any remaining pools are barren. This is one of the most productive tributaries and we regularly see thousands of coho and chum fry there. Nixon Creek was checked last week and was dry and pools there were similarly barren. The winter drought has taken a huge toll in these tributaries.

Ashburnham Creek is likewise dry and only 30 coho fry were rescued there, mostly yearlings. Sutton creek is flowing well and appears to be supporting coho fry.

Lower Robertson River yielded about 600 coho fry that were transported to Bear lake. We will be meeting every Tuesday from now on until all creeks are salvaged.

Volunteer with Seniors

Better at Home Logo

Impacting Community Through the Better at Home Program.

Cowichan Region Better at Home is a program that helps seniors with non-medical, day-to-day tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes. The program is for people at least 65 living in the Cowichan Region.

Our Friendly Visitor volunteers spend time with seniors engaging in conversation, shopping, attending events, reading, walking and many other activities! It’s all about connecting, caring and enriching the lives of seniors who may be isolated and lonely, and not quite able to continue living at home without that helping hand.
