2023 Future Events

Saturday April 22, 5pm YES AGM

We invite you to join us for our YES AGM and Potluck Supper. In person, not by Zoom!

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. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/yellow-point-ecological-society-agm-tickets-608762022597

Wednesday April 12 , 7pm Sharp-tailed Snakes and other Reptiles of Vancouver Island & Gulf Islands

Join us as the Yellow Point Ecological Society and the Nanaimo & Area Land Trust host biologists Carrina Maslovat and Laura Matthias for a presentation on Sharp-tailed Snake conservation efforts in our region.  

Sharp-tailed snakes are a Species at Risk threatened primarily due to habitat loss and habitat fragmentation.  Previously thought to be found only in the Gulf Islands, the southern tip of Vancouver Island and one small area of the mainland in Pemberton, sharp-tailed snakes were recently found in the Cedar area. 

Find out more about this interesting species, the conservation efforts to protect them, and what you can do to help. They will also talk about other reptiles with whom we share our local habitat.

On Zoom, free. Register here:
