About Us

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 to do the same.

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 are new, and just getting going. Most of our work so far has been engaged in trying to protect a 60-acre area of Coastal Douglas-fir forest, and draw attention to the value of the Yellow Point Ecological Corridor that stretches from Hemer Park to Yellow Point Lodge.
