Spring has sprung and we are busy planning for Earth Week 2021! Earth Week is April 16 – 22, 2021, and Project Watershed is celebrating the planet with a host of activities to support the health of Comox Valley Lands and Waters. These activities include a 50/50 raffle, scavenger hunt, and a shoreline cleanup. People who participate in the Earth Week activities and post photos to social media will be entered to win $20 gift cards from the Peninsula Coop.
Project Watershed’s Earth Week 50/50 for Kus-kus-sum is up and running. Tickets cost $5 and can only be purchased online from now until April 25, 2021 at 8 pm. The draw will take place at 10 am on April 26, 2021. The funds fro thr raffle will go towards supporting the restoration and protection of the Kus-kus-sum property which is located on Comox Road next to the 17th Street bridge.
The “Know Your Watershed Scavenger Hunt” is also underway. This is a fun and educational hunt appropriate for the whole family, a couple or an individual. Go at your own pace and enjoy exploring your watershed. Participants who share their experience on Facebook or Instagram, will be entered to win $20 Peninsula Co-op gift cards!
Project Watershed has also planned a Decentralized Shoreline Cleanup for April 24, 2021. In lieu of doing a group clean up we are asking that people do the cleanup with their bubble at a preselected beach and time as part of a Decentralized Cleanup! We will send those who sign up an email to coordinate beaches. The email will also include printable pages for recording the garbage items cleaned up and a list of suggested supplies. People that take photos of themselves while they are cleaning up and post them to Facebook or Instagram will be entered to win a $20 gift card.
