colwood2-hhThe Colwood Creek watershed, located to the west of Victoria, includes rocky hills, lush forested land, lakes, wetlands, residential and urban areas, a community park, a golf course and of course the creek and its associated ecosystems. Rainwater that falls on this area of land (about 850 hectares in size) flows into Colwood Creek and eventually to Esquimalt Lagoon. The upper and lowermost portions of watershed remain in a relatively natural condition, while the middle part of the watershed includes substantially developed commercial and residential areas in the city of Colwood.
