Date and Time
10:00am to 12:00 noon
Courtenay Airpark, meeting at the Mansfield Drive Parking Lot next to the Rotary Skypark.
Come walk with us for Earth Day and learn about the wonders of shoreline habitats. Project Watershed’s own Jay Baker-French and Caila Holbrook will lead the way, discussing how these waterside environments support fish and wildlife, mitigate the effects of climate change and make life on Earth so amazing! They will also point out important cultural and ecological sights along the way including the thousands of remnants of Ancient Fish Traps that still exist in the K’ómoks Estuary. Both Caila and Jay have Masters in Environmental Conservation and have intimate experience working with Comox Valley ecosystems.
We will meet at Mansfied Drive Parking Lot, visit the mudflats of the K’ómoks Estuary and stroll along the Riverway walk and then cross the 17th Street Bridge to the Kus-kus-sum site. Please bring gumboots, dress for the weather and carry a water bottle. This is a free event, however, donations will be accepted and appreciated!
