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!

Beach Life Bingo

This fun activity harnesses and focuses student energy on the beach into a learning experience. Students use full-colour bingo cards to find and identify local beach creatures. All photos were taken in the intertidal zone of Mayne Island, BC by Stephanie Hurst.

Fort Building

Fort building is a cornerstone activity of our program at the Gulf Islands Centre for Ecological Learning. It helps to create a culture of comfort, connection, and community that permeates all of the other activities that we do. This activity works best when participants are going to be spending multiple days in or visiting an area. The fort becomes their home base, where they eat lunch or a snack, do activities or get some quiet time.

Pond Dipping

Wetlands are important habitat for many creatures such as birds, frogs, beavers and bugs. We often dismiss how much life exists underwater because we cannot see it. A simple net and bucket along with curiosity and wonder allow people to explore and learn all about water bugs. Their behaviours and adaptations are fascinating and this playful activity accentuates these aspects.
