Morrison Creek Streamkeepers and Comox Valley Land Trust Recognized for Efforts to Protect Morrison Creek Headwaters
The Morrison Creek Streamkeepers and Comox Valley Land Trust were recently honoured as recipients of Project Watershed’s annual ‘Keeping it Living’ award. The award, an original painting by local artist Bev Byerley, is presented to an organization in the Comox Valley that has made a significant contribution to the restoration and protection of the K’ómoks Estuary and its watersheds.
Project Watershed worked with local artist Robert Lundquist to create this video which outlines how nature will be restored at Kus-kus-sum.
This film highlights why people, businesses, schools etc… are supporting the Kus-kus-sum Project.
This film gives a glimpse of what the old Field Sawmill site (Kus-kus-sum) could look like once it is transformed into nature.
This year is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. It started in 1970 amid Vietnam war protests and scary, diverse and numerous environmental issues in the USA. As the environmental movement grew, so did the general public’s desire for change. Earth Day was first celebrated in Canada by a small yet influential group in 1990, leading to the establishment of Earth Day Canada (EDC), a national environmental charity which overlooks Earth Day events and supports Canadians in celebrating the largest environmental event worldwide across 196 countries.
Some of you may be asking what effect COVID-19 will have on the Kus-kus-sum project. Even though we do not know the full extent of the effects of this pandemic, we remain committed to unpaving paradise at Kus-kus-sum and confident of success.
At the moment our schools and educational institutions are closed to the general public. This means that there are many hands and minds that need to be kept busy. For those of you that have young ones at home or are just looking to find some mental stimulation while in self- isolation Project Watershed has some educational resources for you to enjoy.
Project Watershed is taking the COVID-19 situation very seriously. Everybody in our community including our directors, staff, volunteers, donors, members, family members and friends are vulnerable to this disease. We are doing our part to flatten the curve and slow the rate of infection so that our medical system can support those who need it. To this end, our offices are closed until further notice and fundraising events we were planning, or were being planned by a third party for us, have been postponed.
