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, we hope you will join us in Y.E.S. – Yellow Point Ecological Society, founded in August 2017 by a number of local residents.
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, please join us as a member!
