Dogwood for Margaret

The Heritage Forest, located at the end of Georgia View Road, is 126 ha of land managed jointly by the Galiano Club & the Galiano Conservancy. One of those instrumental in having the Forest created in 2000 was, then serving as an Island Trustee, Margaret Griffiths. After Margaret's death earlier this year a group of friends, with the Club's approval, planted a Pacific Dogwood tree in her memory, most appropriately, in a lovely & quiet corner of the Heritage Forest.

Explore the Bluffs

On March 19th the Galiano Club will be holding a “Bluffs Open House” from 1:30 p.m. on. Meet at the Lookout parking lot to join in trails exploration, perhaps some birding, a Bio-Blitz (learn about the bio-diversity of the Bluffs) and tour of the Charcoal Pit Kiln. This is a chance to check out the trails with experienced Bluffs trail travelers.

Seventh Annual Solstice Potluck by Alison Colwell

On Sunday December 21st we will gather together to celebrate the Winter Solstice, the night of the longest darkness. On Galiano we celebrate the solstice by gathering together as a community. This is the Seventh Annual Solstice Potluck Celebration. It’s all about gathering with your friends and neighbours, sharing some wonderful food, watching the kids arriving at the hall in a lantern procession, chatting around the fire, and enjoying the music and entertainment of some amazingly-talented locals.

Hunting Prohibited in the Bluffs, on Mt Galiano and in the Community (Heritage) Forest

This is a reminder to all that HUNTING is not permitted in the Heritage Forest, Bluffs Park or on Mount Galiano. Please pass this message on so that the people who walk in the Forest can do so safely. Thank you for your cooperation. For safety in general during hunting season, everyone walking in Galiano's forests should try to wear clothing that makes you visible.

The Bluffs Park Lookout Road

Bluffs Park Lookout Road: Rick Gill and Andy Turner from our highways maintenance company, Mainroad, approached the Galiano Club with an offer to repair the “spur” road that leads from Bluff Rd. to the Bluffs lookout. This spur road has been in very bad condition for a number of years. Because the Bluffs are designated “nature protection”, very little alteration can be done within the park. The Islands Trust Planner has approved the road repair work which will include new gravel and ditching as well as adding fill in the lookout parking lot that is a lake for much of the winter.
