Education and Outreach

Project Watershed has a long history of bringing environmental education to schools and the community at large.  We have initiated the following events and programs:


Each school and the Learning Resource Center in the Comox Valley School District 71 was provided a map of their watershed.

WildED, the BC Spaces for Nature Wilderness Education Program

WildED is an award winning, experiential, nature education program that is BC curriculum-linked for students in grades 4 – 12.

BBC, Staying the Course
“Staying the Course, Staying Alive – Coastal First Nations Fundamental Truths: Biodiversity, Stewardship and Sustainability” is an excellent example of the combined efforts of western science and traditional ecological knowledge. As 2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity, the Coastal First Nations fundamental truth statement that this book presents is a unique and timely insight into the proven effective sustainability practices of some of the most complex maritime Indigenous societies on the planet. The core values of Coastal First Nations can also inform the current thinking and policy development for the mitigation of the impacts of climate change.
