Cottonwood Creek Revival Project

Flowing from Cottonwood Lake Regional Park to Kootenay Lake, Cottonwood Creek is an important part of our community. However, parts of the creek are in poor condition and lack habitat that promotes biodiversity. The goal of the Cottonwood Creek Revival (CCR) Project is to assess the condition of the creek and explore opportunities that could improve the health of the creek in the long term.
