The Galiano Conservancy Association has an ongoing program to re-establish and conserve the natural range of ecological processes on Galiano Island. Landscape level GIS analysis and public consultation have identified priority conservation areas in former Coastal Douglas-fir clearcuts and industrial areas, and in Garry oak bluffs. This year’s project involved treating 6 hectares of land for removal of invasive exotic vegetation, planting 3 hectares of land after exotic species removal, assessing 1.5 hectares of old gravel pit for restoration treatments, treating 0.5 hectares of this gravel pit, and developing restoration plans for 110 hectares of clearcut and plantation forest. Public outreach was a component of this project and 2 forest restoration workshops were held and 4 local newspaper articles were written. This project was assisted by many days of skilled volunteer labour. The restoration plans resulting from this work are available from the Ministry library: 1) Gaylor, N., O. Scholz and K. Erickson. 2002. Restoration Plan for DL 63 of the Pebble Beach Nature Reserve. Galiano Conservancy Association, May 2002. 2) Gaylor, N., O. Scholz and K. Erickson. 2002.
