202 Comox Valley Conservation calendars on sale

  • Nov. 7, 2019 3:30 p.m.

The 2020 Comox Valley Conservation Calendars are now on sale at retail locations in Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland.

The calendar showcases photographs of local wildlife and the Valley’s most iconic natural areas. Each month profiles one of the Valley’s stewardship groups working to protect and restore our watersheds and natural areas.

“The calendar is published annually by the Comox Valley Land Trust to support the activities of Comox Valley Conservation Partnership (CVCP) program,” says CVLT executive director Tim Ennis.

“The funds raised by calendar sales help the program to carry out education and advocacy work on conservation issues such as the protection and restoration of the Valley’s watersheds and the last remaining sensitive ecosystems in the region.”

Publication and distribution of the calendar is a real community effort. Photos are contributed by members of the Comox Valley Camera Club and other local photographers. Twelve local businesses support the publishing and printing costs including significant contributions from Sure Copy. Volunteers, community groups and several local retail businesses participate by selling calendars.

“Our customers in the Valley love these beautiful nature calendars. Last year we were able to raise $600 from calendar sales for the Land Trust,” says Steve Stewart, owner/ manager at Edible Island Foods.

Calendars are available in Courtenay, at Art Knapp’s Plantland, Canadian Tire, Comox Valley Art Gallery, Edible Island Foods, Laughing Oyster Bookstore, London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart, SURE Copies, Thrifty Foods, and the Conservation Centre office at 2356a Rosewall Crescent. In Comox at Blue Heron Books, Shoppers Drug Mart and at Mid Island Gifts at the Comox Airport. In Cumberland at Seeds Market. They retail for $20 each.
