We are keeping it green this Earth Week with planting activities, educational presentations and community outreach. To help with these endeavors we are in need of volunteers.
Thank you for helping unpave paradise and keep it living!
Come out and participate in this special Clean-up effort as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on September 25 and 26th, 2021.
The family of Micah Messent would like to announce their support of the Kus-kus-sum restoration project, and Project Watershed, through the creation of the Micah Messent Legacy Fund. The fund will support the restoration of Kus-kus-sum and Project Watershed’s work to further Micah’s legacy within and beyond the Comox Valley.
Here in the Comox Valley, our local beaches have a story to tell about a small fish that is so much more. Maybe you’ve seen Project Watershed out on local beaches, with measuring tapes and high visibility vests, trying to learn more about this small fish with a big impact!
Summer is almost here and Project Watershed is gearing up for another round of surf smelt sampling on beaches around the Comox Valley.
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.
Thank you to everyone who participated in and contributed to our Earth Week activities! We had to make some adjustments to keep everyone safe but in the end we were able to show our appreciation for the Earth and have some fun too.
In lieu of doing a group cleanup, we are asking that people do a cleanup with their bubble at a pre-selected beach as part of a Decentralized Cleanup!
Here at Project Watershed, we believe understanding your landscape or waterscape is the first step to becoming a steward of that landscape. So please join us on this experiential exploration of your watershed! As a bonus, each time you share a photo and comment on Facebook or Instagram, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of three $20.00 gift cards from the Co-op Peninsula.
Spring has sprung and we are busy planning for Earth Week 2021! Earth Week is April 16 – 22, and we will be celebrating our love for this planet with a host of activities to support the health of our Lands and Waters.
Spring – a great time for planting in your garden and in the intertidal/subtidal zones. Once again Project Watershed will be working to restore eelgrass (Zostera marina) habitats by undertaking transplants in areas where the eelgrass is sparse or missing as determined by our coastal nearshore habitat mapping work.
