We are honoured to have been recognized by Telus team members and alumni who chose our organization to be the recipient of their donation dollars. These dollars have been matched by the Team Telus Charitable Giving programme
Such acknowledgements confirm the importance of the work we undertake in partnership with government agencies, corporate sponsors and concerned citizens.
In fulfillment of our mission we have piloted numerous important initiatives and have been recognized with several community achievement awards.
Four focus areas for 2011 are:
- The Courtenay River Estuary: Project objectives are to increase sensitive habitat protection through applied research, the initiation of habitat restoration, and awareness raising
- The Puntledge River Watershed: Includes fish habitat restoration, assessment and protection projects and studies, as well as awareness raising activities highlighting fish and wildlife issues within the watershed
- Education and outreach activities that highlight and promote solutions to sensitive habitat issues in the Comox Valley. Activities such as Streamkeeper and Wetlandkeeper courses, signage installation, landowner contact, volunteer opportunities and maintenance of a stewardship library that is open to the public.
- Through our social enterprise The Mapping Centre we offer professional conservation mapping and related technical services which are used by stewardship groups, consultants and civic planners.
Project Watershed hopes that Telus team and alumni will continue to consider us as an important recipient for donation dollars.
