We are starting Year II restoration works at the Kus-kus-sum site the last week of June! To learn more about this process, please join us for our virtual public community forum on June 16th at 6:30pm.
This video was created by Maddison Thomas of the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s Youth Media Project. It gives a glimpse of what Project Watershed is doing locally to combat global issues such as climate change and habitat loss with the hope of encouraging others to get involved for a better future.

Happy Technician Tuesday! In June, our technician team planted a large number of Lyngbye’s Sedge and some Tufted Hair Grass to restore areas of Hollyhock Flats.
Happy Technician Tuesday! Earlier this year, our technician team surveyed Glen Urquhart stream to assess its profile for future stream restoration projects. While Glen Urquhart has been highly modified and impacted, salmon and other fish species do utilize it. Improved habitat in this area will directly benefit those species.
