Conserving wildlife habitat in the Puntledge River Watershed
A 55-acre parcel of land has been protected within the headwaters of Morrison Creek, which Fisheries and Oceans Canada considers the best salmon-producing river of its size in the Comox Valley!

Comox Valley Land Trust acquired the land for conservation with funding support from the FWCP.
