This year we are celebrating our estuary from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the glacier as is illustrated in our 2017 Keeping It Living Artwork “What is an Estuary?” a video (below) by Sarah, Taralee and Jessie of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Through our events this year we are encouraging people to #thinklikeawatershed.

The Estuary, its rivers, and lakes all form part of an important salmon highway that return abundance to the Comox Valley year after year. These are all eco-assets that we need not only protect and restore but work with to deal with our rapidly changing infrastructure demands.
