30 for 30

As we mark our 30th anniversary, we are proud to reflect on three decades of environmental stewardship that have brought positive changes to our community and the larger area of Vancouver Island. Our growth over the years has allowed us to spearhead numerous large initiatives aimed at protecting and preserving our local watersheds.

During our 30 years, we have worked tirelessly to raise awareness about the critical importance of environmental conservation and to mobilize individuals and communities to take action. We have collaborated with like-minded organizations, partnered with government agencies, and engaged with the public in creative and innovative ways. We’ve made a significant impact, but we know that there is still much work to be done.

That is why, as we commemorate our 30th year, we are launching our 30 for 30 campaign. This campaign is designed to rally support for our ongoing efforts to protect the environment and make a lasting impact for future generations.

We are inviting all of our supporters and partners to consider making a donation of $30 to Project Watershed or donate 30 hours of your time to our projects throughout the year. We believe that every little bit counts and any contribution plays a large role in protecting our local environment.

At the end of the year, we will be celebrating and recognizing those who have given 30 for our 30th year by sharing stories and giving prizes to those who have donated their time or funds to support our cause (more details about this to come!).

As we embark on the next 30 years of environmental stewardship, we are excited to see what the future holds. With the support of our community, we are confident that we can continue to make a difference and leave a lasting legacy of environmental protection and conservation.
