Laurel Creek Citizens' Working Group

A group of people planting trees by a stream

Laurel Creek Citizens' Working Group logoThe Laurel Creek Citizens' working group is a vibrant group of adult volunteers that work in collaboration with the City of Waterloo to provide educational experiences relating to local streams and stream stewardship activities for the community.

Get involved in stream stewardship activities

The Laurel Creek Citizens' working group offers many stream stewardship activities each year from May to October that you can participate in. Drop in and lend a hand to plant trees, pick up litter or rehabilitate a stream. View this handout for more information on participating in stream stewardship activities.

Visit the group at local environmental events to learn about the creatures that live in our streams and how to keep our surface water clean. View their annual spring newsletter for details on up-coming events.  Sign-up online or complete this form to receive the newsletter and email notifications one week prior to each stream stewardship activity.

Volunteer opportunities

The City of Waterloo seeks adult volunteers on the working group to help plan and deliver stewardship and educational experiences for the community. Consider joining this vibrant group to assist with the following:

  • participate in meetings on the second Thursday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m.
  • co-ordinate and lead fun, hands-on aquatic activities at local events to educate youth and adults
  • deliver stream stewardship activities one Saturday per month from May to October
