Date and Time
Locations within the Comox Valley.
We often need items picked up or dropped off at locations around the Comox Valley and would like to have a group of volunteers who are willing and able to do this as needed.
How it would work: We would email out the pickup/drop off location, item(s) and timeframe to the group a few days in advance (we will give as much notice as we can). Then anyone who can fit it into their schedule would reply with an affirmative answer. We would them confirm with that individual and let the rest of the group know that it has been handled.
To participate you need to have your own transportation, ideally a minivan, large SUV or truck and a fairly flexible schedule.

Earthworks Continue at Kus-kus-sum
While the Kus-kus-sum site is already beginning to come into its own, there is still much work to be done. Just over one third of the area was recontoured and planted last year in 2022. Project Watershed aims to recontour and replant the remainder of the site this summer and fall, if funding allows. The key works you will see on site this year include recontouring and regrading, habitat complexing, and native species planting.
