Burnaby Streamkeepers Program

Update: The fall 2016 salmon spawning season saw record numbers of Chum salmon (and lesser numbers of Coho salmon) return to Burnaby streams to spawn. The run began in mid-October and peaked in mid-November, 2016. View this map to see in which Burnaby streams salmon were observed. 

The City of Burnaby supports environmental stewardship groups that help protect and restore Burnaby’s many Waterways and Watersheds throughout the City. These groups and their dedicated volunteers play an important role in monitoring, enhancing and speaking on behalf of Burnaby‘s watercourses and streamside riparian areas. City staff work closely with streamkeeper groups on a number of initiatives, events and activities.
