Signs of Abundance Map
Project Watershed has created and installed 11 informative signs as part of our Signs of Abundance tour. The tour is designed to be a self guided tour of the estuary focusing on the topics of ecology and history. The location of the signs are shown as red stars on the map on this page. You can access additional information on the topics at each location by clicking on the location in the list either at the left of the map or below it.
Take the tour and learn more about our incredible estuary!

Estuaries are not only one of the most biologically productive types of ecosystem, they are also one of the most valuable. It is difficult to attach monetary worth to these ecosystem services, especially since most are needed for life on earth and are not replaceable with human-made systems, at any cost.
The K’ómoks IBA is an amalgamation of the former Comox Valley IBA, Baynes Sound IBA and Lambert Channel/Hornby Island Waters IBA. These three IBAs share common populations of waterbirds but were established as separate IBAs because they were nominated independently.
