It will cost approximately $6.5M to purchase and restore the old Field Sawmill site to a natural state. Of this we need to raise $500,000 from the Comox Valley community by December 20th, 2019. We will be writing grants to all levels of governments, as well as local, national and international organizations to raise the balance of the funds.
We are delighted to announce that the province has stepped up with a million dollar contribution toward the acquisition. We have raised over $400,000 from the local community so far and $2 million overall. We are proud of our community to get so close to our goal of $500,000 by December 20, 2019. Donate now and watch Kus-kus-sum transform from an eco-liability to an eco-asset.
