The Tofino Streams Project is a partnership between Raincoast Streamkeepers and Central Westcoast Forest Society to assess and help restore four local streams within the District of Tofino.

Jensen's Bay, Mackenzie Creek, Centennial Creek, Tonquin Creek are all local streams that have either been know to support fish populations in past years, or are prime habitat to support fish populations. There has been very little baseline data collected on these streams. Therefore, the project assessment will measure water quality parameters (temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen), conduct fish presence sampling, and evaluate in-stream and riparian habitat conditions.
