The HISTORY of the Galiano Conservancy
Formed in 1989 as an instrument for community-based land acquisition, management and conservation of habitat, the Galiano Conservancy is a broad-based non-profit organization devoted to land and marine conservation, stewardship and restoration, as well as devoted to environmental education and public awareness. While land protection for conservation remains an important part of the Conservancy's mission and work, it has recently acquired a large property and land in order to create the Galiano Learning Centre, which focuses on:
1. Providing action-oriented experiential education in areas such as:
sustainable agriculture and food security
species at risk
conservation planning and mapping
2. Restoring damaged ecosystems
3. Demonstrating ecologically sustainable ways forward, increasing our wider
community’s knowledge base around food security, renewable energy and
sustainable living practices, and species and habitat conservation
