Say YES to Y.E.S.!

Welcome to the Yellow Point Ecological Society

Do you care about nature, ecology, and the beauty of the Yellow Point region where we are so blessed to live? If your answer is YES, welcome to Y.E.S. – the Yellow Point Ecological Society, founded in 2017 by a number of local residents.

Your are invited to join us for our YES AGM, Saturday April 22nd, 5pm

We will look back at the past year, and consider our plans for the future. And oh yes, we’ll do the normal AGM things (at 6pm), including inviting new people to join our Board/Team.

It’s at the home of Carolyn Herriot and Guy Dauncey, 13561 Barney Road, off Yellow Point Road – the white house at the bottom of Barney Road. After you go up and down the hill, turn left, park on the road, and walk in! Bring something yummy to share. 

We’re doing an Eventbrite RSVP to get a sense of numbers.

The Mystery of Sharp-Tailed Snakes

Here is the video from  Carrina Maslovat’s and Laura Matthias’ presentation If you have an area of sun-filled Garry oak meadow on your land, and are interested to set up artificial cover object (black asphalt shingle) to observe if you have these tiny snakes (see below) on your land, please contact Linda Brooymans at the Nanaimo area Land Trust.  The video explains all about it.

Our purpose is to understand, appreciate, protect and restore the ecosystems and watersheds in the Yellow Point area of Vancouver Island, and to inspire and support local residents and visitors to do the same. We honour the Snuneymuxw and Stz’uminus First Nations, who have stewarded these lands and the waters of the Salish Sea for thousands of years.

We love the forests and lakes, the creeks and streams, the ocean, the farms, the wildflowers, and the many creatures we share this region with, from the bears and beavers to the owls, woodpeckers, blue jays and nuthatches.

We want to protect and celebrate Nature’s beauty. We want to be a voice for the wildlife, the forests and the plants that have no human voice with which they can speak. If you are a kindred spirit, we invite you to join us as a member
