Places Protected in the Islands

About

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.
