The Comox Valley Environmental Council has been officially dissolved after 25 years of service to the Comox Valley, the group announced July 18.
CVEC provided a forum for organizations and citizens to come together and share information about the environmental issues affecting the Comox Valley and its residents.
“Other groups, new communications technology, networking, and the good work of the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy are now covering most of what CVEC used to do,” the group noted in a press release.
“Many of our members began advocating for fish, wildlife and the natural world as young adults. We are encouraged to see a new generation embracing environmental protection and conservation, and we hope our youth will make this a lifelong passion and pursuit as many CVEC members have done. We encourage them to join some of the existing groups doing good work here in the Comox Valley or to follow their passions.”
The members of CVEC have chosen to contribute its remaining funds to the following organizations: Mountainaire Avian Rescue, Comox Valley Land Trust, Cumberland Community Forest, Maple Lake acquisition fund (Village of Cumberland), and the Young Naturalists of Comox Valley Nature.
