Project Watershed releases walking map booklet

still a few walks that have to be GPSed

If you enjoy the outdoors, walking and learning about the Comox Valley, the Walking the Watershed’s map booklet is for you.

Hot off the press, this new booklet features 18 easy to moderate walks from around the Comox Valley. As well as showing GPS routes, each walk includes a description, rating and trail information such as the location of benches, picnic tables, bridges and more. Booklets are now available at the Vancouver Island Visitor’s Centre, Project Watershed and the Broken Spoke, with more locations to come.

Comox Valley Project Watershed Society partnered with the Comox Valley Community Foundation, Discover Comox Valley and SureCopy Courtenay to create the booklet. The booklet is a sampling of the 40 walks included on the online interactive Walking the Watershed’s map that was launched in 2013 – walkingmap.projectwatershed.ca. The walks themselves were GPSed by Project Watershed volunteers between 2011 and 2012 with funding from Comox Valley Regional District.

As indicated on the website there are still a few walks that have to be GPSed. If you are keen to go on a walk and collect GPS information contact Project Watershed at maps.projectwatershed@gmail.com.
