Nancy Greene and David McGee, local archeologists and Comox Valley residents, are going to be speaking at the upcoming K’ómoks Estuary Seafood Dinner.

Their groundbreaking research The Comox Harbour Fish Trap Complex: A Large-Scale, Technologically Sophisticated Intertidal Fishery from British Columbia was Nancy Greene and David McGee published in the December Issue of Canadian Journal of Archaeology. Greene and McGee’s research indicates that a massive fishery was carried out by the First Nations in the K’ómoks Estuary for over 1,000 years.

To celebrate these findings Project Watershed is holding an exclusive dinner event at Locals Restaurant on June 15 which will highlight elements of this research through mixed media and keynote speakers.

This event is a component of the BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival and Project Watershed’s 2016 Keeping It Living Campaign.

Project Watershed is partnering with a variety of local businesses to host this “fun”draising dinner and thanks them all for their support.
