Comox Valley Nature AGM Sunday

Comox Valley Nature will be holding its annual general meeting Sunday, Feb. 17 in the Rotary Room of the Filberg Seniors Centre at 411 Anderton Ave. in Courtenay.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m.

The event will include open house presentations of salient work and projects that CVN does around the Valley.

The Comox Valley has a diversity of ecosystems ranging from marine intertidal estuaries, rivers, marshes, forests and subalpine mountain habitats. These habitats are home to an abundance of organisms. The Comox Valley naturalists have been a leading conservation force in the Valley for the past 53 years, and are responsible for the preservation of many of the Valley’s green spaces and corridors.

Frank Hovenden will present an overview and report of the restoration work that the naturalists have done at the Courtenay Air Park since it was converted from a septic treatment site to the public jewel that is enjoyed every day by the public. Ernie Stefanik and Krista Kaptein will present a review of the weekly trumpeter swan count and its status today. Kathleen Wilkinson will present a report of the recently formed shoreline group which has been collecting data on the biodiversity of our shorelines, and the impacts of hard-shoring and climate change.

This is an excellent opportunity for the public to learn more about nature in the Comox Valley, nature photography and developing environmental issues.
