SeaChange Marine Conservation Society


SeaChange Marine Conservation Society, established as a charitable non-profit prganization in 1998, educates children and the public about marine and watershed ecology through hands-on interactive outdoor programs. We also conserve and restore marine nearshore eelgrass habitats in BC in partnership with coastal communities, from Boundary Bay to Haida Gwaii.

Our Goals: 

Galiano Conservancy Association


The Galiano Conservancy has been providing outdoor education programs since 2001.  Groups and classes visit Galiano Island for one day field trips and multi-day camping excursions.  Through our programs, students are given basic ecological knowledge and engaged in an array of projects that may include active restoration, local food security at our food forest and garden site, geocache and navigation and an introduction to backpacking and hiking.  Some of our favourite activities are highlighted in the resources section of this website.
