The 2014 Comox Valley Conservation Calendars are now available for sale.

The wall calendars are a one-of-a-kind educational tool, featuring stunning photographs of some of the Valley’s iconic natural areas such as the Tsolum River, Comox Lake, Strathcona Provincial Park, Morrison Creek, the Northeast Woods and the Comox estuary.

Each month features a large colour photograph and pairs it with information about local environmental groups like Project Watershed, Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society and Comox Valley Nature. The calendar highlights the great work that these groups’ are doing in our community and is a great resource for people looking to learn more about the Comox Valley’s rich ecology or for volunteer opportunities.

The calendar is published annually as a fundraiser by the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy (CVCS) Community Partnership. These funds directly support activities that promote and conserve natural areas through improved land use planning in the Comox Valley.

“The annual calendar project is a real community effort. Every year, the CVCS coordinates the gathering of information from environmental groups and photos from some of the Valley’s best photographers with the help of photographer Kerry Dawson. The photos are then reviewed and 13 finalists are selected,” said CVCS Education sand outreach co-ordinator Alison Millham.

The calendars are available for sale at a variety of locations around the Comox Valley. In Courtenay, they are at Canadian Tire, Edible Island Foods, Shoppers Drug Mart, Laughing Oyster Bookshop, the Comox Valley Art Gallery, London Drugs, Art Knapp’s, the Conservation Centre office at 2356a Rosewall Crescent, and the Ryan Road branches of the Royal Bank. In Comox, calendars are available at Portuguese Joes, Blue Heron Books, and at Mid Island Gifts at the Comox Airport. In Cumberland, the calendars are available at the North Island Visitors Centre and Seeds.

The CVCS Community Partnership is a coalition of 20 local environmental and residents’ associations that support the Conservation Strategy.

In addition, local schools, clubs and community groups are invited to use the calendar as a fundraiser for their own projects and activities.
