What is the Conservancy?
The Bowen Island Conservancy is committed to protecting and preserving the natural wonders of the island—from endangered coastal bluffs to inland lakes to wetlands and fens. Through our work and advocacy, we offer a hopeful future for our children and the amazing diversity of plant, animal, and insect species with whom we share this extraordinary place.
Our work involves:
- Acquisition of ecologically-valuable land;
- Public education;
- Arranging conservation covenants.
On our Current topics page you will find information about project activities that we are currently working on, as well as issues that are of concern to us.
Projects and Initiatives
Some of the projects in which the Conservancy is involved include:
- Fairy Fen Nature Reserve: one of the most undisturbed, biologically diverse, and ecologically rare fens in southern British Columbia;
- Quarry Park Stone Circle moss garden: this project highlights a unique feature of Quarry Park and is a lovely and surprising place;
- Headwaters Park: includes a boardwalk over a rare wetland habitat.
- The Cape Roger Curtis lands: a “one-of-kind” place in the Lower Mainland, with a long, wild shoreline.
