About YWES

The Yorkson Watershed Enhancement Society strives to lessen many of the problems facing the Yorkson watershed by encouraging local residents to care for its streams. Our group is made up of concerned individuals from Walnut Grove and Willoughby in Langley, BC. To us, stewardship is having a positive impact on our creek and the surrounding habitats.
