Project Watershed extends a big thanks to Fluid Bar and Grill, Mike Toulmin Construction, and Good Karma Delivery for their donation of Community Way dollars (cw$).

These dollars will help the organization promote stewardship of Comox Valley watersheds through education, information and action.

Project Watershed is focusing much of its work on the Courtenay River estuary, which it says is the heart of our watershed, not to mention a unique and special feature of the Comox Valley.

“We are concerned about its health, and through our Estuary Working Group are striving for increased protection and restoration,” Project Watershed says in a news release. “The Estuary Committee has estimated it to cost over $100,000/year to protect and restore the estuary — we need every dollar we can get.”

To learn more about Project Watershed’s programs and initiatives, visit www.projectwatershed.ca. You can also find them on Facebook.

Project Watershed is a registered charity and funding for its activities depends on governments, foundations, memberships and local businesses. Community Way gives charities like Project Watershed a new avenue for fund generation that everyone in the community can be a part of.

If you own a business, consider joining Community Way and donate to Project Watershed. It is an excellent way to promote your business. Since Project Watershed is a registered charity, charitable tax receipts can be issued.

The Community Way dollars you donate to Project Watershed will go towards protection and restoration of the beautiful and highly cherished natural environment of the Comox Valley. To find out more about joining Community Way, visit www.communityway.ca.

Another way to support your community is to buy cw$. Buying cw$ from Project Watershed is similar to donating, but better as you get to use your money twice: first, by supporting Project Watershed, and again by purchasing from local businesses.
