On Saturday, 23 November MARS hosted the 2013 Comox Valley Trumpeter Swan Festival. It was a cozy event in the cool weather and many familiar faces made a turn. Have a look at some images from the event in the slideshow below.
Every year Project Watershed bestows an array of Keeping It Living Awards to a deserving group and chosen artists. These awards are part of a campaign created to promote community knowledge of and pride in the K’omoks Estuary. One such award is the Keeping It Living Award, a merit based award that recognises an organisation, group or business exhibiting leadership in protecting and restoring the K’omoks Estuary. The other awards – People’s Choice, Artist’s Choice and Keeping It Living’s Choice – go to artists from their winning submissions to the Keeping It Living Campaign’s Art Competition.
This year the Estuary Working Group and Project Watershed bestowed the 2013-14 Keeping It Living Award on the Comox Valley Naturalists. Below is a video of the ceremony.
