Description

We are looking for volunteers to help spread the word about Project Watershed through information booths for Earth Week. At each booth we will have information about Earth Week activities that people can participate in, as well as information about our projects, including Kus-kus-sum. In addition to showcasing this information, volunteers would be asked to help process donations and sales from the few fundraising items we will have on hand. New volunteers will be teamed up with more experienced volunteers to show them the ropes and help answer questions. We will also provide each volunteer with links to information about Project Watershed and the Kus-kus-sum project prior to the booth so that they are up to date with what is going on. Volunteers are not expected to know everything about Project Watershed and will be asked to direct people who have in depth questions to contact our staff.

The three booth events are as follows: Comox Valley Regional District Earth Day Celebration on April 16 from 11 to 3 pm at the main office, Mark Isfeld Eco-fair on April 21 from 8:30 am to 12 noon at Mark Isfeld and Comox Earth Day on April 22 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm at St. Peter’s Anglican Church.

Climate Change and Kus-kus-sum by WWF

This video, produced by the World Wildlife Fund, explores the connection between Kus-kus-sum and climate change. One of the benefits of restoring 8.3 acres of habitat at Kus-kus-sum is all the plants that are being planted will take up carbon, helping mitigate climate change.
