About Conservation

Our Association is actively undertaking programs that benefit Comox Valley communities and the local economy, through protecting and enhancing our fish and game resources and their habitats.

These include:

  • Planning of a cold water Coho Hatchery on our property in partnership with DFO to re-stock the Trent River.

  • Assistance to the Ministry of Land, Forests and Natural Resource Operations to monitor fish stocks in local lakes.

  • Undertake habitat restoration projects in local streams, including Arden and Morrison Creek.

  • Assist Ministry of Lands, Forests and Natural Resource Operations to trap and relocate Roosevelt elk to various locations on Vancouver Island for elk reintroduction programs.

  • An active partner with Ducks Unlimited in their wetlands acquisition program in the Comox Valley.

In the fall of 2023, our crew were at their annual COHO egg harvest for our hatchery. This year, we were lucky to have  Rochelle Baker from Canada's National Observer to tag along and get the full story of this hard working group of volunteers.  To see the full article, please follow THIS LINK
