Kus-kus-sum, 1901 Comox Road


There is more work to be done at the Kus-kus-sum site before summer. We are looking for volunteers to assist us with potting up some salt marsh plugs, weeding and potentially mulching. Jay Baker-French will be leading these onsite activities. Please note that volunteers need to be able to negotiate uneven ground for this activity and that there are no bathrooms onsite.

If you are going to volunteer, we ask that you dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, bring gardening gloves if you have them (we will have extras) and bring a water bottle.

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.
