Project Description

Their mission is “to promote community stewardship of Comox Valley Watersheds through education, information and action”. 

Tiara’s focus within Project Watershed on involved engaging with a network of groups and citizen scientists who are actively monitoring the local beaches for forage fish (specifically eggs, adults and juveniles of Pacific Sand Lance and Surf Smelt). This project aims to map forage fish habitat and abundance, as the species have remained relatively unstudied in the area.
