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.
