Places Protected in the Islands
As part of a rezoning process, the Old Point Farm residential
development on Saturna Island donated this conservation covenant in
2004, protecting nine hectares of the development's common
property. The Old Point Farm covenant protects nearly the
entire western shoreline of Boot Cove. Douglas-firs and
arbutus blanket a ridge high above the water. A steep
sandstone escarpment plunges from the forest's edge to the water
below. Unique moss species find sanctuary among the cracks
and crevices of the bluffs. Osprey have been seen circling
the skies above the protected area.
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.
