Earth Week with Project Watershed

Earth by Elena Mozhvilo

Spring has sprung and we are busy planning for Earth Week 2021! Earth Week is April 16 - 22, and we will be celebrating our love for this planet with a host of activities to support the health of our Lands and Waters.
Due current COVID numbers in BC and our commitment to keeping everyone safe, we are postponing the Earth Week Planting that was scheduled for Friday the 16th and modifying the Shoreline Cleanup scheduled for Saturday the 24th.
Earth Week Planting – Once COVID regulations have relaxed and it is safe to do a group planting at the Airpark those who were signed up for the 16th will be contacted with the new date and time via email. We will also share the new dates via Facebook and our website.
Earth Week 50/50 for Kus-kus-sum is running as planned. Tickets cost $5 and can be purchased from now until April 25th at 8 pm. The draw will take place at 10 am on April 26th.
Know Your Watershed Scavenger Hunt – This is a fun and educational hunt appropriate for the whole family, a couple or individual. Go at your own pace and enjoy exploring your watershed. If you share your experience with us on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll be entered to win Co-op gift cards!.
Shoreline Cleanup – In lieu of doing a group clean up we are asking that people do the cleanup with their bubble at a selected beach at the time they have committed to as part of a Decentralized Cleanup! We will send those that have signed up an email to coordinate beaches. The email will also include printable pages for recording the garbage items cleaned up and a list of suggested supplies. People that take photos of themselves while they are cleaning up and post them to Facebook or Instagram will be entered to win a $20 gift card.

These activities are made possible by our sponsors The Old House Hotel and Spa, Ohspa, Peninsula Co-op and the Courtenay Airpark Association.
