Trial Islands Ecological Reserve

In 1990, the Trial Islands just off of Oak Bay were designated as an ecological reserve of 23 acres in order to protect what is considered the “most outstanding known assemblage of rare and endangered plant species in British Columbia.”  As an ecological reserve, the park has the highest level of protection available in BC for the conservation of physical and biological diversity.  While research and educational activities are allowed, recreational activities are limited and a permission to land is required.
