They chose the Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society (MVIHES).

The group has been working in Parksville for several years to encourage residents to appreciate the value of the area’s wetlands, shorelines and streams.

They have undertaken projects with students to inform them and to awaken their interest in local  water habitat.

Receiving the funding for MVIHES, Faye Smith said they are thrilled that Knox’s Outreach Committee has chosen MVIHES school field trip program to support.

Smith went on to say that the outreach committee should be commended for supporting the local environment.
