Shore clean-up at Simms Park

The annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup event is happening, and in Courtenay, Project Watershed will once again be undertaking a clean-up of the Simms Park waterways.

“We again will have mutual assistance from the Comox Valley Nature folks – many hands make light work,” said Bill Heidrick, Project Watershed director and chair of the education and outreach committee.

Everyone is welcome. Bring gloves and appropriate footwear and your enthusiasm to create a cleaner, healthier environment.
