(Comox Valley; October 27, 2020) There is probably no one who will be sad to say goodbye to 2020. Start planning for the new year: 2021 Comox Valley Conservation Partnership calendars are on sale now at retail locations in Courtenay, Comox, and Cumberland.
The calendar showcases photographs of local wildlife and the Valley’s most iconic natural areas. Each month profiles one of the stewardship groups working in the region to protect and restore our watersheds and natural areas.
“The Comox Valley Land Trust publishes the calendar annually to support the activities of the Comox Valley Conservation Partnership program,” said Tim Ennis, CVLT executive director. “The funds raised help the program carry out education and promote conservation issues such as the protection and restoration of the Valley’s watersheds and the last remaining sensitive ecosystems in the region.”
Publication and distribution of the calendar is a real community effort. Photos are contributed by members of the Comox Valley Camera Club and other local photographers. Twelve local businesses support the publishing and printing costs including significant contributions from Sure Copy Courtenay. Volunteers, community groups, and local retail businesses participate by selling calendars.
“Our customers love these beautiful nature calendars,” said Edible Island’s owner and manager, Steve Stewart. “Last year we were able to raise over $700 for the Land Trust and its important programs.”
Calendars can be ordered online or purchased in Courtenay at Art Knapp’s Plantland, Canadian Tire, Comox Valley Art Gallery, Edible Island Foods, Laughing Oyster Bookstore, London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sure Copy Courtenay, Thrifty Foods, The Refillery, and Uranus Gifts. In Comox you will find copies at Blue Heron Books, Shoppers Drug Mart, Island Affair Gifts, and Mid Island Gifts at the Comox Airport. Cumberland residents can purchase calendars at Seeds Market. The calendars retail for $20 each.
