Project Watershed worked with local artist Robert Lundquist to create this video which outlines how nature will be restored at Kus-kus-sum.
This film highlights why people, businesses, schools etc… are supporting the Kus-kus-sum Project.
This film gives a glimpse of what the old Field Sawmill site (Kus-kus-sum) could look like once it is transformed into nature.
If you haven’t already seen it, CBC did a radio interview and a post about our Kus-kus-sum project. Thank you, CBC! We’d also like to acknowledge the importance of the collaboration of the City of Courtenay and K’ómoks First Nation in moving toward our vision for this spot!
Some of you may be asking what effect COVID-19 will have on the Kus-kus-sum project. Even though we do not know the full extent of the effects of this pandemic, we remain committed to unpaving paradise at Kus-kus-sum and confident of success.
A recent donation from the Li-Grimmer family means we are one large step closer to restoring the Kus-kus-sum site and unpaving paradise! The Li-Grimmer family’s generous $50,000 donation to the Kus-kus-sum project is a huge boost that will help us make our next payment to Interfor, which is due at the end of June 2020. We are very grateful for their support!
This is a list of all the people and organisations that contributed to Project Watershed and Kus-kus-sum. We appreciate every donation large or small as it all gets us closer to transforming the eyesore in the heart of our Valley into functioning habitat.

The original Fields Mill was started in 1947 on the current site of Arden Elementary school. The Comox Rd site was cleared of trees in the late 1940’s and the mill moved its operation to the Courtenay River location, below the 17th Street Bridge in 1949.
We met Daniel and Nadine at a LIFT fundraisier for Kus-kus-sum, they had the winning bid on a silent auction item. They said they wanted to do more and have committed to donating 10% of all their online sales to the Kus-kus-sum project until June 2020! This December they donated $350 and are excited to up that amount by June.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who helped make this double raffle a success for Queneesh School’s Aboriginal program and for Kus-kus-sum!
