Meet our new Executive Director, Caitlin Pierzchalski

Caitlin Pierzchalski

The Board of Directors is proud to announce the recruitment of an Executive Director to the Project Watershed team. Caitlin is a marine biologist with a wealth of knowledge and experience appropriate for the organization at this juncture in Project Watershed’s growth.

Caitlin is a restoration ecologist, watershed steward, and experienced program manager. She was born and raised on the traditional territory of the Sylix-speaking Peoples and is currently based on unceded Coast Salish territory. She is inspired by her love of oceans, and has been working in and learning from marine and coastal environments throughout the Salish Sea for the past 10 years. She believes in exploring the unique ways each of us can contribute to and support healthy, future ecosystems for our communities, and is always reflecting on her own role in this. She’s keen to support and further community-engaged stewardship in the Comox Valley that contributes to thriving watersheds, and holds a cautiously hopeful view for the future for our lands and waters.
