Comox Valley Project Watershed Society is hosting their AGM on May 30th and has lined up Briony Penn as their keynote speaker. Briony Penn is a well-known environmental artist, educator and writer. “We are very excited to have Briony speak, her humour and knowledge about the natural world are inspiring in these uncertain times.” said Caitlin Pierzchalski, Project Watershed Executive Director.

 “As the AGM will be entirely online through Zoom, we can’t provide snacks or refreshments. In lieu of this we are going to hold a draw from those who attend and give away copies of Briony’s book “Stories from the Magic Canoe of Wa’xaid”” reports Brian Storey, Project Watershed Treasurer.   

 The meeting will be held virtually over Zoom on Sunday, May 30th from 7pm to 8:30pm. Everyone is invited to join and must pre-register at to receive the AGM package which will include the Zoom details. 

 In addition to a keynote speaker, the meeting will celebrate the successes of the Kus-kus-sum project and take a look at the next steps for the site. Project Watershed will also highlight important milestones and activities from their other 2020 – 2021 projects, including their Coastal Restoration work and Forage Fish beach surveys. The business side of the meeting will be kept short and will include a brief financial report and the election of board members.

At issue is the forecasted hot and dry weather conditions over the August long weekend and beyond, with no significant precipitation in the forecast. With wildfire danger ratings at local stations already at Extreme, all users of the Cumberland trails are asked to be extra cautious and vigilant while recreating in the trail system.

Metal Recycling at Kus-kus-sum

In the spirit of summer fun, Project Watershed is holding a contest to see who can guess the number of full bins of metal that will come of the site. If you want to take a stab at estimating, email, or post your guess to Instagram or Facebook with #metalrecycling and #kuskussum, by Friday June 23rd. The closest three guesses will win a $25 gift certificate from the Peninsula Co-op. If there are more than three correct guesses we will draw three names from those who have guessed correctly.
