Migratory Bird Sanctuaries of Victoria

Victoria is home to three Migratory Bird Sanctuaries which - along with Important Bird Areas and Ecological Reserves - make up our vibrant "Nature Hood." This amazing CRD-produced resource describes what a MBS is and maps out the different protected regions of our community. Most important, it describes how we can be stewards of our MBS. This resource packages features the general MBS info-sheet as well as information on each of the three individual sanctuaries. Visit www.sanctuaryproject.com for more information!

Stewards of the Future Toolkit

Stewards of the Future is an exciting new youth initiative of the Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. The program provides funding and support for high school teachers and other educators to go on field trips, visit local sites of interest, and engage in stewardship projects in their communities. This guide has been created for teachers, leaders and students to inspire and support them in becoming involved in hands-on, place-based explorations of their communities, and the stewardship issues relevant to them.
