Project Watershed Plans for Spring Eelgrass Transplants
Both an intertidal and subtidal transplant are planned for this year. The subtidal work will take place with divers off just south of Ships Point in an area where Project Watershed undertook some saltmarsh restoration work last year. Two sites are being considered for the intertidal transplant, either Little River or Miracle Beach. Once site selection is confirmed the intertidal transplant will take place, with the help of volunteers, during the low tide window between May 25 and 30. Post-transplant the beds will be seasonally monitored to ensure that the restoration has been effective.

Happy Technician Tuesday! This will be our final tech post of the year. We’d like to reflect on the work we’ve done in 2021.
Happy Technician Tuesday! Our technician team has been leading volunteer planting events at Glen Urquhart Creek.
Photo documentation of forage fish spawning habitat is valuable in our aim to protect these important nursery areas. Photos provide a story of each individual beach over time.
These cards help protect & restore habitat in the Comox Valley. A card will be sent to a special someone when you make a donation.
Happy Technician Tuesday! Last week our team partnered with Laura Terry from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to conduct a beach seine at Hollyhock Flats.
