Coastal Restoration Fund Update

After many long hours researching, mapping and writing  Project Watershed’s Coastal Restoration Team has produced the first draft of the Salish Sea North East Vancouver Island Salmon Highway (Nearshore Habitat) Coastal Restoration Plan. This foundational document will serve as a guide for future nearshore habitat restoration projects that Project Watershed and our partnering organisations carry out. It catalogs a long list of potential projects including restoration of eelgrass, kelp and salt marsh habitat along approximately 120 kms of shoreline from Oyster River to Fanny Bay.

Before the end of March we will holding two stakeholder input sessions to gather feedback on the document, help prioritize projects and firm up the partnerships necessary to initiate work on the projects that are shown to be top priorities. One of the sessions will be in Oyster River and the other in Fanny Bay. If you are a member of a stakeholder group in the Fanny Bay to Oyster River region please watch for details on the stakeholder sessions.
