Raffle to raise funds for Kus-kus-sum project in Courtenay

Project Watershed is hosting a raffle to raise funds for the Kus-kus-sum project in Courtenay.

The Kus-kus-sum project is one to remove 8.3 acres of concrete at the old Field Sawmill site, recontour and replant with native species. The site was purchased from Interfor in November 2020 and is being held by Project Watershed in trust for the K’ómoks First Nation and the City of Courtenay.

The project has already raised 64 per cent of its $6.5 million target. The latest fundraiser is an easy way for residents to get involved.

Tickets are only $10 each, with three amazing prizes available.
