Come and learn more about the Comox Lake Watershed’s history, hydrology and ecology!

Whether you’re new to the Comox Valley, or new to this important topic, come and be part of a fun night of learning, connecting and building community.

The Comox Lake Watershed is a complex and beautiful network of creeks, rivers, mountains, glaciers, forests and riparian areas. It is also the source of drinking water for most of the Comox Valley. But how much do we really understand about how this watershed works? What challenges is it facing? How is it changing? And how will we change with it.
