Special guest Jack Minard from the Comox Valley Land Trust will also be presenting and speaking about the connection between CCFS activities and other Comox Valley initiatives to protect important natural corridors and forest lands.

All monthly donors or anyone who has made a tax receipt-able donation in the last fiscal year are members of the society and eligible to vote on resolutions and in board elections. You can also sign up as a donor at the meeting and join this exciting community campaign! Light refreshments will be served.

With the the help of donors and supporters the CCFS has successfully purchased 71 hectares of forest lands surrounding the Village of Cumberland since 2000. They have now set their sights on another 50 hectares of forest scheduled to be logged in 2015 and 2016. This lush second growth forest is filled with wetlands, diverse plants and animals, heritage landmarks and significant hiking and mountain biking trails including Black Hole, Space Nugget and Bronco’s Perseverance.
