Project Watershed’s very own Bill Heidrick received the Paul Harris Fellow Award from Rotary Club of Courtenay on June 1, 2021.
Despite the global pandemic, Project Watershed has made progress worth celebrating over the past year. There have been some major changes and we are continually adapting to the new normal. However, we remain dedicated to stewarding, and enabling others to steward, the Comox Valley and beyond. Our work is just as important as ever and we are grateful for all the people who have joined us over the past year. This report highlights our organizational changes and achievements between the beginning of summer 2020 and the end of spring 2021.
Comox Valley Project Watershed is hosting our 2021 AGM on May 30th at 7pm. It will be entirely online through Zoom. Everyone is invited to join and must preregister to receive the AGM package which will include the Zoom details.
After a brief hiatus from Project Watershed Jennifer Sutherst has returned to the organization as our Senior Staff Biologist in order to continue to support our sensitive habitat stewardship objectives.
The Board of Directors is proud to announce the recruitment of an Executive Director to the Project Watershed team.
In honour of Valentine’s Day and to show our love for our community and everyone in it, Project Watershed proudly announces that we have signed the Safe, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Pledge that Comox Valley Pride has created.
Christmas is coming and this year visits with relatives, friends and family are being discouraged. In these social distancing times sending a beautiful card will show you care and support our local environment.

We were finally able to hold the Paintings, By The Numbers event on Sept 12, 2020. The event raised over $25,000 for Kus-kus-sum and despite the fact that it was very different than we had planned preCOVID, it turned out to be a success.
Ken Kirkby and Nana Cook have donated 43 of their paintings and seven from their collection to raise funds and awareness for Kus-kus-sum through the engaging and powerful medium of art and the promise of getting a great deal. Each painting is worth between $1,500 and $4,000.
