Restoring natural habitat conditions in the Puntledge River Watershed
Three priority areas in the K’ómoks Estuary, totalling 1,200 m2, have been treated for reed canary grass. Spread of the invasive plant in the estuary has tripled since 2004, so this project by the Comox Valley Project Watershed Society aims to not only treat target areas but also test for the most effective treatment methods.
Seven different treatments were used in the Hollyhock Marsh Conservation Area, Dyke Slough, and the lower reaches of Mallard Creek. The Comox Valley Project Watershed Society will monitor the sites to figure out which methods have the most impact.
