World Water Day hits Qualicum Beach

Qualicum mayor and Qualicum First Nation chief will be at the event next weekend

The annual World Water Day celebration is set for Saturday, March 21 at the Brant Lookout beside Highway 19A in Qualicum Beach.

Starting at 10:30 a.m. people concerned about water issues will gather in the little park and participate in a “Water Walk” a short distance up to Grandon Creek.

At the creek, after some welcoming remarks from Town of Qualicum Beach Mayor Teunis Westbroek and Qualicum First Nations Chief Michael Recalma, long-serving streamkeeper Faye Smith will describe improvements made to the creek by the town and Streamkeepers to facilitate the return of coho salmon.

Participants will walk back to the park and beach to witness and learn about new erosion prevention measures taken by the town as part of its preparation and research for a Waterfront Master Plan.
