BCIA WEBINAR - Field Sawmill Ecological Restoration

May 22, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Victoria & Islands

Victoria & Islands branch presents a Webinar about

Field Sawmill Ecological Restoration

Find out more about one of the most ambitious environmental initiatives in the Comox Valley, Kus-kus-sum - Unpave Paradise. Project Watershed, the City of Courtenay and the K'omoks First Nation are partnering to transform an eco-liability into an eco-asset by turning the abandoned sawmill site, formally known as Field Sawmill, into fish and wildlife habitat. Long ago this area was near a large First Nation Village, Kus-kus-sum, that thrived on the wealth of natural resources in the Comox Valley. The K’ómoks First Nation has given the site the name Kus-kus-sum in honor of that village. They say “you could walk on the backs of the salmon going upriver in the fall”. Rewilding Kus-kus-sum is part of Project Watershed's hope to return some of that abundance. This initiative will be a legacy, a turning of tides, a reclaiming and you can get the inside scoop.
