Signs of Abundance

Project Watershed is pleased to announce that eight of the Signs of Abundance Tour signs are up. The tour is designed to be a self guided tour of the estuary focusing on the topics of ecology and history. Two more signs will be erected in the near future to complete the tour. The location of the signs are shown in the map on this page. This was a community effort with support from Rotary, K’ómoks First Nation, City of Courtenay, Town of Comox, the CVRD and other interested stewardship groups and residents.
