The Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre is a charitable non-profit. Our purposes are: To advance education by providing programs and classes to children, youth, and the public on the subjects of the Cowichan Estuary, its marine and bird life, its natural and cultural history, the Cowichan and Koksilah Watersheds, and other natural ecosystems, and to protect, restore and enhance the quality of the natural environment in the Cowichan Estuary and its adjacent watersheds.
The Nature Centre, located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Quw’utsun’ People, engages people of all ages in hands-on learning and watershed restoration opportunities in the Cowichan estuary, and the Cowichan and Koksilah watersheds, creating opportunities for children and adults alike to fall in love with this special ecosystem and feel interconnected with the natural world. We believe these experiences motivate people to share their love and knowledge of nature, and act to care for and protect natural ecosystems here and throughout the Cowichan Valley.
