Places Protected in the Islands

About

Developer Ian Ralston protected the forested bluffs on northeast Thetis Island with a conservation covenant in 2005.  Although not a requirement of a subdivision, Mr. Ralston donated the covenant at the same time as he was developing the Meadow Valley Subdivision, permanently protecting the natural habitat on the development's common property.

The steep hillside holds small groves of arbutus and mature Douglas-fir.  Honeysuckle and other plants typical of the dry coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems grow there.  The covenant area also preserves a forested corridor along Pilkey Point Road, maintaining this scenic rural road.
