Remembering Micah and Honoring his Legacy at Kus-kus-sum
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.
A legacy is one way a person or persons are remembered. A legacy – large or small – to Project Watershed can be a part of that, showing a special commitment to the ongoing work of restoring and sustaining Comox Valley watersheds and the K’omoks Estuary for future generations.
Special occasion giving
