Walkabout Program

The Land Stewardship Walkabouts

How the Conservancy Can Help

MICS offers a service to land holders on Mayne Island where, at your request, our trained staff and volunteers will accompany you for a walkabout of your property. We can discuss its natural features and how becoming a land steward can preserve or enhance these features. This is a great way to get to know your plants and animals while sharing your enthusiasm for the land. If you are interested in setting up a walkabout please contact us at stewardship@conservancyonmayne.com.

About Land Stewardship

Are you interested in land stewardship? If the answer is yes then the Mayne Island Conservancy can offer the following assistance:

  • An initial conversation followed by a walkabout of your land to discuss your stewardship goals while pointing out valuable wildlife habitat, native plant and animal species, and opportunities for enhancing those features
  • An aerial photograph of your property showing different ecological areas and plant communities
  • Access to locally grown and adapted native plant species
  • Recommendations for achieving your stewardship goals
Walkabouts are a great way to share what you love about your land with others while adding to your own knowledge.
