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.”
