Splitrock Environmental Sekw’el’wás is an award-winning, Aboriginal-owned business that specializes in environmental services, ecological restoration, propagation of native plant species, ethnobotany and eco-cultural tourism.

The community of Sekw’el’was is nestled in the middle-Fraser Canyon of southern British Columbia.  Sekw’el’was translates as “split rock” referring to the split in the mountains surrounding the community and the cold waters of Cayoosh Creek plunging into pools between two rocky cliffs.

Drop by their native plant nursery to learn more about the plants of their region and pick up some plants for your water wise gardening projects.

Sekw’el’wás hand drummers are happy to share traditional St̓át̓imc songs to welcome you to their territory.  Mini-plays in the wild featuring the coyote and bear can be arranged on request.


Experiential Cultural Tours

Explore the connection between the St̓át̓imc culture and the land. Check out old s7ístken sites, learn about the native plants and their cultural uses, discover fish and invertebrates up close, learn about pools, riffles and glides, walk through riparian and grassland habitats. Explore the Seton River Salmon Spawning Side-Channels, learn about the salmon lifecycle and their incredible journey from their home rivers, to the ocean, and back again. You may be lucky to see spawning salmon, small fry, bears, deer, coyote, ducks and lots of birds who call that area their home.

Eco-Culture Centre Tours

Stop by the Eco-Cultural Centre to taste test some great berries and juices (in season) and see the work of their local artists and crafters. Their small gallery features quality products made by local community members, including pine needle baskets, stone carving, woodwork, wild-crafted food products, salves, soaps, art, cards, T-shirts and nature-themed books. You could even join them and make something yourself!
