Father Charles Brandt (1927 – 2020) was a well-known spiritual and environmental leader in the Comox Valley. In 2019, he chose to protect his 11-hectare property along the banks of the Oyster River with a conservation covenant held by the CVLT. With his passing, the land will eventually become a public park managed by the Comox Valley Regional District. There are currently no trails on the property.

The property includes Father Charles’ hermitage cabin that is jointly managed by a non-profit society comprised of members of his Hermitage Advisory Committee and the CVRD. The hermitage provides a home to a “contemplative individual.”

Father Charles’ beloved home will offer others a place of solitude and inspiration for years to come.
