Purchasing and Restoring Kus-kus-sum is Reconciliation in Action

The Kus-kus-sum project that Project Watershed is spearheading will not only create habitat for fish and wildlife, help mitigate climate, and increase green space, it will also help our community put reconciliation into action.

We have $700,000 left to raise by the end of August to purchase the property. Once the property is purchased the title will be jointly held by the Kómoks First Nation and the City of Courtenay. As soon as the title is transferred we can being the restoration process. Donate today as our Estuary Angel is matching the next $12,500 in donations.
