Since May last year Project Watershed has been working with seniors of the Comox Valley to create environmental education resources and materials for grades K-7 in a program called Seniors Keeping it Living with Students in the Comox Valley. We are pleased to announce that these materials are now available at projectwatershed.ca/glacier-to-estuary. The resources include lessons, field trips, maps, worksheets, coloring pages, local videos and links to other relevant materials. We had over 45 people volunteer their time to create these resources, many of which were involved in piloting the field trips.

We will continue to provide presentations and field trips as a component of this work as time and funding allows. If you are interested in working with children please contact us at info@projectwatershed.ca to become part of a team of people that helps pass on important, local, environmental knowledge to our future generations. We need people to do in class presentations and help out on field trips. If you have already contacted us about volunteering we will be emailing you over the next few months as opportunities arise.
