Thank you to the Comox Valley Record for capturing such a great day on April 2nd with with Gavin Domitter, Bill Morgan, David Meikle, Tanisha Monster, Graeme Robertson and Dyson Blitterswyk, K’ómoks First Nation, Project Watershed and an amazing group of volunteers that helped with a spring planting at a former sawmill site in Comox, BC.

The site is located along the Tsolum River and has been given the name Kus-kus-sum by the K’ómoks First Nation. The vision is to restore it and connect it to the K’ómoks Estuary creating an 8.3-acre productive fish and wildlife habitat. This spring planting used native plant species and is one of the first of many activities that are taking place to revitalize this site. Milestone is very proud to be a partner with K’omoks First Nation in KEDC/Milestone JV, and in giving back to the communities where we work and live. Learn more about Project Watershed here.
