Morrison Creek Streamkeepers and Comox Valley Land Trust Recognized for Efforts to Protect Morrison Creek Headwaters
The Morrison Creek Streamkeepers and Comox Valley Land Trust were recently honoured as recipients of Project Watershed’s annual ‘Keeping it Living’ award. The award, an original painting by local artist Bev Byerley, is presented to an organization in the Comox Valley that has made a significant contribution to the restoration and protection of the K’ómoks Estuary and its watersheds.
“People do amazing things,” said Paul Horgen, board chair of the Comox Valley Project Watershed Society. “There’s a lady who lives in Comox who brought in a jar of coins. She says every day she takes a toonie from her purse and sticks it in a jar, and at the end of the month she donates it to Kus-kus-sum.”
“This video highlights the diversity and depth of support for our work, much of which is geared towards the protection and restoration of salmon habitat.” commented Paul Horgen. He went on to say “Wide spread community support will be necessary to tackle some of our large scale restoration projects such as turning Fields Sawmill site into Kus Kus Sum Park.”
