Places Protected in the Islands
James and Christina Barrineau protected the natural portion of
their Galiano property because they wanted to preserve its unique
features forever. The Barrineau Conservation Covenant
protects 1.8 hectares of maturing forest with snags and wildlife
trees that will one day be home to a diversity of raptors,
woodpeckers and songbirds. The covenant protects a seasonal
stream and the riparian area that supports it.
The Barrineau Covenant is near Bodega Ridge Provincial Park and
Laughlin Lake Nature Reserve, providing a safe haven for wildlife
outside these larger protected areas. Combined with another
conservation covenant nearby, the Barrineau's covenant is part of
an important protected area network, or wildlife corridor, along
the upland forest of Trincomali Channel.
This covenant came to the Trust Fund Board through NAPTEP
Natural Area Protection Tax Exemption Program).
The Steils and the Steil's Woods Covenant
After more than 50 years immersed in the hustle and bustle of the lower mainland, Sara and Richard Steil now enjoy a quieter life surrounded by natural habitat they protected with a conservation covenant.
