District of Saanich – 2018 Election

Maltby Lake is at the headwaters of the Tod Creek Watershed.  The 21-acre near pristine water body is surrounded by 172 acres of relatively undisturbed forest and wetland. The property is an example of unspoiled lake and land ecosystems.

The Friends of Maltby Lake Watershed Society is a registered BC non-profit society and Canadian Registered Charity established by BC environmental activists to:

  • conserve the riparian, Garry Oak and coastal Douglas Fir ecosystems, the sensitive flora and fauna therein and the watershed ecosystems draining into and from, Maltby Lake;
  • educate the public and relevant stakeholders to the importance of this delicate ecological and cultural landscape; and,
  • create wildlife corridors, generate habitat for native species, and to reduce pollution on Vancouver Island for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.
