Locally Based Environmental Education Resources Available During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Our resources can be found at https://projectwatershed.ca/glacier-to-estuary/. They include lesson plans, activities, experiments, colouring pages, short educational videos and presentations. Please note that due to social distancing field trips are not available at this time. We do have our Signs of Abundance Tour, which pairs ecological information with locations around the estuary, and our Interactive Estuary Map. A mapping activity, The K’ómoks Estuary Map Quest, has been created for the Interactive Map and is tailored for students in grade 3 to 6.
For younger minds with even busier hands, Hand-in-Hand education is posting educational games and activities for preschoolers on their website https://hand-in-handeducation.com/kid-friendly-nature-activities/.
The best part about all these resources is that they are actually available sans pandemic so you can access them anytime! If you have a great learning activity and want to share it with others please let us know and we may be able to post it to our resources page.
Have fun learning about our incredible local environment!
Here is a summary of our AGM on June 12th including the 50/50 Raffle winner, Volunteer Appreciation Draw, and Zoom recording.
Thank you to all our members, board, staff, and community supporters for making 2021-2022 Project Watershed’s biggest year yet! We managed and coordinated 5 different restoration projects, our Keeping It Living Dinner, brought in $1.8 million dollars in grants, and started restoration on our largest project to date, Kus-kus-sum.
We are starting Year II restoration works at the Kus-kus-sum site the last week of June! To learn more about this process, please join us for our virtual public community forum on June 16th at 6:30pm.
Help Project Watershed fund our restoration, research, and education projects in the Comox Valley! Tickets go on sale June 1st. 1000 tickets available at $5 each.
