Barrineau NAPTEP Covenant
James and Christina Barrineau protected the natural portion of their Galiano property because they wanted to preserve its unique features forever. The Barrineau Conservation Covenant protects 1.8 hectares of maturing forest with snags and wildlife trees that will one day be home to a diversity of raptors, woodpeckers and songbirds. The covenant protects a seasonal stream and the riparian area that supports it.
The Barrineau Covenant is near Bodega Ridge Provincial Park and Laughlin Lake Nature Reserve, providing a safe haven for wildlife outside these larger protected areas. Combined with another conservation covenant nearby, the Barrineau's covenant is part of an important protected area network, or wildlife corridor, along the upland forest of Trincomali Channel.
This covenant came to the Islands Trust Conservancy's board through NAPTEP (the Natural Area Protection Tax Exemption Program).
The Steils and the Steil's Woods Covenant
After more than 50 years immersed in the hustle and bustle of the lower mainland, Sara and Richard Steil now enjoy a quieter life surrounded by natural habitat they protected with a conservation covenant.
