Welcome to the Yellow Point Ecological Society (Y.E.S.). 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 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.

If you are kindred spirit, please join us as a member!

Y.E.S. Speakers Series: Thursday February 1st, 7pm

We invite you to join us for An Evening with Erik Piikkila, forest ecologist. At 13561 Barney Road, off Yellow Point Road. Google map


Join us to learn about the Coastal Douglas fir ecosystem that we live within, and how we can protect and preserve it. Erik is a Forest Ecologist and Forester in Training in BC who is involved with Wildwood Ecoforest, Y.E.S., and GreenBlue, and advising the BC Green Party on Forestry Issues. He has experience with Ecosystem Based Management in BC, Washington, Oregon, California and Finland.

Y.E.S. Monthly Hike: Sunday February 11th, 11am

A planned hike in the Yellow Point Ecological Reserve. Meet at the end of Whiting Way. No dogs, please, since this is an ecological reserve. Wear waterproof boots.

Say YES to Y.E.S.

It is our hope that over the years many people will step up and say, “YES, I want to protect and celebrate Nature’s beauty. I want to be a voice for the wildlife, the forests and that plants that have no human voice with which they can speak.”
