Comox Valley Project Watershed Society will hold its 20th annual general meeting on May 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Comox Valley Art Gallery at 580 Duncan Ave. in Courtenay.
“We have a special AGM program that should interest all residents who acknowledge the estuary and rivers and streams feeding into the estuary as the most important natural features in the Valley,” says board chair Paul Horgen.
Updates on their Puntledge salmon enhancement projects will be shared and new projects in the estuary including eelgrass planting and blue carbon will be presented.
“Our education and outreach efforts included the sighting of a bird never reported in the Comox Valley, a flotilla on the estuary, and ended with a highly successful carol walk during the holidays,” reports vice-chair Betty Donaldson.
After a short business meeting and a refreshment break at approximately 8:15, Caila Holbrook, Mapping Centre co-ordinator, will briefly demonstrate and present to all Comox Valley residents the Walking the Watershed Map of the Comox Valley.
These are GPS-generated, printable maps of walking trails in the Valley. The AGM will end with a special preview presentation of an 18-minute video featuring the archeological work on ancient fish traps of Valley residents Nancy Green and David McGee with comments from First Nations and other valley residents.
This wonderful video was produced by Michael Fountain of Blue Bamboo Industries. Project Watershed invites everyone and anyone to attend.
