This Annual Report summarizes Project Watershed`s activities over the 2019 – 2020 period.
On June 30, the students and instructors of Toshikan Traditional Karate and Kobudo, in Courtenay, completed 108 kata (kata is a series of self-defence techniques combined in a traditional form) as fundraiser for the Kus-Kus-Sum project, in appreciation of Project Watershed’s good work for natural habitat of the valley and the estuary.
A variety of native plants, shrubs and trees will be established at Kus-kus-sum as part of the restoration process. This will not only provide food, shelter and habitat for fish and wildlife but also help mitigate climate change. Check out this video to find out more.
Project Watershed’s Kus-kus-sum project is important for supporting the broader Salish Sea Ecosystem. The project will restore habitat for fish and wildlife, attenuate flooding, and create habitat connectivity to adjacent conservation lands in the estuary. Kus-kus-sum provides habitat for mobile species, such as salmon, that utilize the broader Salish Sea ecosystem in their lives.
On July 23, we invite you to pour yourself a glass of nice wine, coffee or tea, settle into your comfiest chair with your laptop or other device and enjoy Project Watershed’s first ever, online Annual General Meeting.
The Society is offering a contract for a two-year, part-time term opportunity, with the possibility of extension, to perform as a Biological Assistant and Program Coordinator.
