About HWRS

Our Society

Hatzic Watershed Restoration Society (HWRS) is a local non-profit society made up of residents of the watershed but you don't need to be a resident to help out. Our society includes people committed to protecting and restoring the watershed while balancing the need for agriculture, industry, residential development, and recreational values. We hope to facilitate the implementation of recommendations from the recently published "Hatzic Lake Management Plan" which includes not only projects at Hatzic Lake but throughout the watershed.

Our Mission

Collaborate with local residents, First Nations, all levels of government, non-profit groups, recreational users, and the general public to improve water quality, protect and restore wildlife and fish habitat, and manage invasive species in the watershed. We hope to balance the need for agriculture, industry, residential development, and recreational opportunities with the protection and improvement of ecosystem values.
