Restoration of Kus-kus-sum conservation lands will improve salmon habitat

Restoring riparian habitat in the Puntledge River Watershed

The restoration of a sawmill site along the Puntledge River is one step closer to being realized: new provincial funding will secure the purchase of the Kus-kus-sum conservation lands. We helped fund the purchase and develop the site restoration plan, which includes the removal of 3.36 ha of concrete and metal cladding along the shoreline. Restoration will improve habitat and increase survival for Chinook salmon and other species at this site of cultural and environmental significance to the K’omoks First Nation.
