Come out and help install live willow stakes and plant potted plants in the riparian areas of Glen Urquhart Creek – October 19 to 22, 2022.
Project Watershed is going to have a booth at Fiesta on November 19 and 20. We are looking for volunteers to help sell tea, hats, and art cards.
Over $5,500 in estuary inspired prizes, including a unique kiln glass salmon sculpture, one night’s stay at the Old House Hotel and Spa, Ohspa gift certificates and more. Tickets $10 each, draw date November 18th. All proceeds support environmental restoration and research in the Comox Valley.
We have another 2,000 plants arriving at the Kus-kus-sum site next week and are looking to get them all in the ground before the end of October.
A few changes have been made to our volunteer program as we work towards streamlining our process. These changes were discussed at the two Volunteer Symposiums we held recently and are posted here for those who couldn’t attend.
The Keeping It Living Dinner held on Sept 17, 2022 was an all round success! It was great to be able to celebrate our accomplishments and projects from the year in person with members of our community. In addition to the great food, music and wine, we also raised $8,000 for environmental restoration and research!
