Erosion of the Willemar Bluffs adds sediment (sand, gravel etc..) to the beach area in front of the Bluffs
Longshore drift carries this sediment down the beach
The sediment settles in this area – creating and maintaining Goose Spit
Out here the flow of water from the Courtenay River is strong enough that the sediments don’t settle but get whisked out of the K’ómoks Estuary.

What can I do to help?
We are often looking for extra hands to help with stewardship projects – from planting to invasive removal to education. To volunteer fill out our volunteer form we will contact you with dates and times our activities occur.
We respectfully acknowledge that we live, work and play within the traditional territory of the K’ómoks Nation.
