Earth Day 2022 with Project Watershed

Planting at the Airpark ~ Dan Bowen

We are keeping it green this Earth Week with planting activities, educational presentations and community outreach. To help with these endeavors we are in need of volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to staff information booths at Mark Isfeld’s environmental fair and at the Comox Earth Day event. Volunteers will be paired up with Project Watershed staff or board members and asked to help distribute information about Project Watershed, the estuary and Kus-kus-sum.

If you are looking to get your hands dirty we need volunteers to help plant and maintain native species at the Courtenay Airpark. In addition to planting, we will be mulching, weeding and watering past and present plantings.  As rabbit herbivory greatly impacts the plants at the Airpark we will be building cages to protect the plantings.

We are also looking for volunteers to help spread mulch and compost on the Kus-kus-sum site.  These two activities will happen concurrently and volunteers may be asked to assist at either location depending on workload.

All volunteers who participate in our April/May opportunities will be entered in a draw for one of three $25 Peninsula COOP gift cards.
