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.

NATURE, ENERGY, PEOPLE.

Sierra Club BC works to defend B.C.’s wild places and species, within the urgent context of climate change.

We advocate for a rapid shift away from fossil fuels to a low carbon, equitable economy.

We work to inspire British Columbians to value nature and to defend it. In particular, we focus on children and youth to foster environmental literacy and to encourage the environmental leaders of tomorrow.

Sierra Club BC relies on science-based research and peaceful, democratic means to advocate for change.

Habitat Acquisition Trust is a regional land trust that conserves nature on south Vancouver Island. We envision a future where the full array of natural habitats on south Vancouver Island and southern Gulf Islands is healthy and conserved.

There are five ways we work to achieve our vision:

For more than 30 years, Fisheries and Oceans' Salmonid Enhancement Program has supported British Columbia and Yukon Educators who teach their students to understand, respect and protect freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems, and to recognize how all humans are linked to these complex environments.

DFO's Stream to Sea Education Program is a menu of classroom/field activities and teacher training opportunities. Go to Stream to Sea in the Programs section to learn more.

The Goldstream Nature House is located in Goldstream Provincial Park on South Vancouver Island.  It has a rich history of offering nature-based education programs for all ages.  The Goldstream Nature House operates without government funding, using a combination of fundraising, donations, community sponsors and partnerships to keep its doors open. RLC Park Services believes that nature experiences are vital to the health of our children and is committed to keeping these opportunities available to all children.

Rocky Point Bird Observatory

Rocky Point Bird Observatory (RPBO) began in 1994 as a pilot project of the Canadian Wildlife Service and local volunteers to monitor neotropical passerines (songbirds) in coastal British Columbia. In February 2000 a board of directors formed a society to manage the observatory. The RPBO is a member of a national network of 25 migration monitoring stations with Bird Studies Canada (BSC) from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland.
