Wetland Restoration

Wetland Habitat Restoration Project and Airpark Stewardship (Invasive Plant Control & Native Species Plantings)

The society has helped to control both purple loosestrife and scotch broom. CVN Wetland Habitat Restoration Project in the wetlands and estuaries of the Comox Valley is in its 18th year, targeting purple loosestrife, Scotch broom, yellow flag iris, Himalayan blackberry, and knotweed species. (The report is available from the Publications Section in .pdf format) CVN are also stewards of the Courtenay Airpark at the Courtenay River estuary. Invasive plants are being removed and replaced with native plants, with the aim of creating a Garry Oak Meadow.
