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! The area provides important habitat for large mammals, fish, amphibians, and birds, including species at risk. In fact, one species, the Morrison Creek lamprey, isn’t found anywhere else on earth. Comox Valley Land Trust acquired the land for conservation with funding support from the FWCP.
