Forage Fish Presentation March 17, 2022
This presentation is the culmination of research done by Project Watershed and others in the northern Salish Sea over the past three years. This project was made possible by generous funding from the BC Salmon Restoration and Innovation Fund, the Pacific Salmon Foundation, and the Comox Valley Regional District. It was also made possible by the work and leadership of many community volunteers.
It is a free event. However, participants are required to register to receive the Zoom details.

We got a first look at how a restored Kus-kus-sum will operate during storms and king tides this winter. It was exciting to see the high tides move over the steel wall and inundate the site.
Approximately 4,000 native plants were planted at the Kus-kus-sum site over six days this October! THANK YOU to the 160 volunteers who contributed to planting, mulching and watering during this time – we would not have been able to accomplish this without you.
