For 2016, we are proud to support two local organizations who are doing amazing things in the Comox Valley. Please give them your support and high-5s the next time you see them out in the community.
CUMBERLAND COMMUNITY FOREST SOCIETY
We also support the Cumberland Community Forest Society. A dedicated group of residents are dedicated to preserving the Cumberland Forest that borders the Village of Cumberland from Comox Lake to the Trent River. This lush, thriving forest is home to diverse flora and fauna, a significant trail network and important heritage landmarks.
The CCFS has identified an additional 50 hectares (in 3 parcels) as their next purchase plan. These parcels include some of the earliest mountain biking trail systems developed in the area as well as landmarks of heritage significance. Like all the forests surrounding the Village these parcels are also home to diverse flora and fauna and species at risk. Our goal is to raise $1,200,000 by 2016 to protect these lands in perpetuity.
The MOMAR supported the CCFS in 2015 and helped raised $4000 for the cause to bring the cumulative five year total to $7000+! To support the cause and to make a donation, please visit www.cumberlandforest.com

The MOMAR has also supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation of BC/Yukon and has raised in excess of $27,000 over the past seven years. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
