Sunday Feb 2 about 8:30 am on a high tide of 17.4 feet water flowed easily from the K’omoks Estuary into the previously land locked slough. This opening to naturalize water flows has been part of building the new Royston bc Waterfront Trail.
Additional planting of shoreline grasses is being planned to develop more of this green shores project. Rocks that were originally used to build the Comox Logging Railway here are now being recycled to stabilize this breech.
Check the Comox tide charts if you wish to catch a high tide for inflows or lower tide for outflows. The Royston Slough is now much fresher than it was last summer.
Thanks for visiting and sharing our Trail blog.
