Conservation and Nature


Please come out and see for yourself the remarkable transformation of Mr. Campbells portable sawmill site at the entrance of the Learning Centre. I am very excited, our first major restoration initiative at the centre. It's been a collaborative effort with the local school and UVIC students. I would love for all of you to participate and get your hands dirty in this inaugural project.

Home Living, Accommodations

The Galiano Conservancy still needs more housing for Volunteer Student Interns. The next one to arrive is Markus from Germany on May 31. We find them free housing in exchange for all the hard work that they do and they provide and prepare their own food.

Please contact me at if you can help for any portion of the time they are here. Many thanks to everyone who has provided accommodation in the past.
