Unique and Rare Species

Garry Oak ecosystems have more rare and endangered species than any other ecosystem in Canada. Look for colourful wildflowers, edible native plants and fauna found only in Garry Oak meadows. Learn how First Nations peoples have been caring for these special ecosystems for thousands of years.

Helping Endangered Ecosystems

Grab your gloves and loppers and help us save our Garry Oak ecosystems! Kids will work together to remove invasive plants that are crowding out native species.

Get Active Outdoors

Get your steps in as you hike from sea level to Mount Galiano’s 314 meter summit. This moderately challenging hike takes about  1-1.5 hours (with a few breaks in between) from parking lot to peak. This program is a great opportunity for those looking to introduce their class to hiking and outdoor recreation.
