Sponsor A Species
Give the gift of a healthy ecosystem this holiday season with Greenways
The perfect eco-friendly gift for any nature lover!
Make a real difference by symbolically adopting either a frog, bear, salmon, owl, eagle or mushroom.
or visit our office to participate!
For the holiday season, Greenways has launched a fun new way to give: by sponsoring a local species in the name of the recipient of your gift. It's simple, you select the species you would like to sponsor, the amount you would like to give, the recipient of your choice and then Greenways will mail them a personalized card featuring the species you chose to sponsor in their name and a certificate of sponsorship! There is also an e-card option.
This gift helps restore, sustain and protect natural areas and critical habitats for the beneﬁt of our community & the planet.
Special thank you to Steve Williamson & Eiko Jones Photography for donating the stunning images that will be featured on the cards.
Project Update - The Magic of Giving
A huge THANK-YOU to all of our donors that support Greenways by allowing us to put their donation towards where it is most needed. From keeping the lights on in the office to funding unexpected expenses such as the materials to build a safe ramp for the bridge over Kingfisher Creek, these donors support all of the work that goes on in the background to get projects off of the ground so that we can help kids get outside and learn about nature, our Streamkeepers out enhancing salmon habitat and so much more!
In the past year, we have had donations from
Katrina Kaboly Real Estate, Browns Bay Chum Derby, 100 Women Who Care, BeachFire Brewing, Bow & Antler Screen Printing, Cedar Elementary School, Centre for Spiritual Living, Healthyway Natural Foods, IG Wealth Management, Teakerne Holdings, and so many other individual donors... we couldn't do it without you!
Thank you to each and every one of you for your support of all of the work that Greenways does everyday to enhance natural areas for people and wildlife in Campbell River.

Freaky Friday the 13th |
Midnight Intertidal Walk
It's December Holiday Season.
To biologists in Campbell River that means BIG low tides, but only at midnight!
Celebrate Friday the 13th West Coast style. The group will meet at Highway 19A and Larwood Rd. parking area at 11 pm to enter the nocturnal abode of the intertidal zone. Sandra Milligan, who is a biology teacher at North Island College, will be there to help point out some glowing shrimp eyes, shockingly slimy sea cucumbers and all other creatures that are out and active in the dark. Low tide of 1.9 ft at 23:43.
Headlamps, warm clothes and rubber boots essential. Recommend bringing an extra light per group; walking stick, and hot shots for extra comfort. Cold temperatures mean slippery rocks. See you in the spook zone.
No cost, all ages event.
Citizen Scientists Needed!
Forage Fish Spawning Habitat Sampling
Equipment & training provided!
Project Watershed is looking for volunteer citizen scientists to help monitor beaches in Campbell River for a forage fish habitat modelling project for the northern Salish Sea.
This is a great opportunity to get free training and experience
sampling beach sediment - looking for Pacific Sandlance and Surf Smelt eggs (key forage fish for salmon and a variety of other predators). The sampling will be done around Saratoga Beach and Salmon Point.
The goal of this project is to put together a map of forage fish habitat 'hot spots' in the area in order to make better management decisions and lobby for better protection of these areas.
For more information and to volunteer, please contact Jennifer (email@example.com
) or call the Project Watershed Office at 250-703-2871

Greenways @ Festival of Trees!
We are thrilled to be part of the museum's annual FESTIVAL OF TREES which attracts hundreds of locals over the month of December. Organizations and businesses adopt a tree and give it an individual decorative Christmas'y touch.
|Museum at CR|
Keep an eye out for the Greenways' tree featuring decorations made from natural materials! With the help of students from Southgate Middle School, we gathered local botanical materials and then transformed them into beautiful and simple decorations. Using natural materials, these decorations aren't creating more waste and if we're being honest, the process of making homemade crafts is just plain fun!
And a huge thank-you to the Museum at CR for providing a free storage space for the Greenways tools and equipment for the past three years!
