So Long Jennifer and Thanks for All the Fish!
She has been intimately involved in all aspects of project management and brought a wide variety of our projects to a successful conclusion. She has helped improve the Comox Valley in some very tangible ways, all of which help support our local salmon stocks.
Jennifer has recently decided to change jobs, and everyone at Project Watershed is sad to see her leave, however, we know that she will continue to be an environmental leader in this community. We congratulate her on her new role as Coordinator of Environmental Services for Defence Construction Canada.
In the meantime, the projects she was managing will continue under the leadership of the rest of our Project Watershed team of staff, contractors and directors.
Over the past month, there have been many forage fish and/or forage fish egg sightings spread along the coast of Vancouver Island.
Project Watershed hosted a Fundraising Blitz this November which closed with a Reverse Telethon on Saturday, November 28th. The Blitz successfully raised over $60,000 and donations are still rolling in. All donations from the Blitz have been matched by the Ngan-Page family fund and they have extended their commitment to match donations until December 31st!
