Farewell Jennifer Sutherst
Jennifer was intimately involved in all aspects of project management in her position as Senior Staff Biologist at Project Watershed. She was instrumental in the success of our projects, most notably Kus-kus-sum, over the past 11 years. She was a pleasure to work with and always willing to do what she could to make the world a better place. We’re so grateful for the many contributions Jennifer has made to Project Watershed over the years. We wouldn’t be where we are today without her kindness, wisdom, expertise and dedication to excellence.
While everyone at Project Watershed was sad to see her leave, we know that she will continue to be an environmental leader in this community. We congratulate her on her new role as Community Involvement and Resource Restoration Section Head for Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s South Coast Area. A huge thank you to Jennifer for all her hard work and best wishes to her on her next adventure!
The projects Jennifer was managing will continue under the leadership of the rest of our Project Watershed team of staff, contractors and directors.
Wow 40 plus amazing, citizen scientists supported the forage fish project this season. They covered almost 30 beaches between Hornby Island, the Comox Valley, Campbell River, and Cortes Island.

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.
