Project Watershed was established in 1993 by a small group of local citizens concerned by declining fish stocks, water quality and rapid urban development in local watersheds. Numerous activities and programs have happened since then.

In 2008 Project Watershed hosted the Estuary Symposium which featured leading experts on estuaries in B.C. and beyond. It was learned that the Courtenay River Estuary is one of only eight Class 1 estuaries in British Columbia.  In this public forum event the importance of protecting First Nations heritage and wildlife habitats was illustrated.

And now, in 2017 Project Watershed has a plan to purchase and restore the old Field’s Sawmill site in Courtenay. Come for an interesting presentation about our very special estuary.
