Places Protected in the Islands

About

Biologists believe Great Blue Herons, a species at risk in B.C., abandon their nests when loud or unusual noises occur within a critical distance of one kilometer of their rookeries.   The Where Ere You Walk Covenant protects a wooded lot within that one kilometer buffer of the former McFadden Creek heron rookery on Salt Spring Island.  The trees here offer a quiet sanctuary to visiting herons.  McFadden Creek runs through the property.

This property was protected in 2002 by the landowner who was keen to see the trees and creek watershed protected for the benefit of the species that live here.
