Natural Area Management

The City has a number of important natural areas and habitats.

Natural areas in Victoria include what is left of the once-widespread Garry Oak ecosystem, as well as Cottonwood bog, Douglas Fir forest, Coastal Bluffs and riparian zones.

To preserve this habitat, the City:
  • Monitors the health of natural park areas and endangered species in the city
  • Promotes awareness of conservation and environmental issues to municipal staff and the public
  • Develops and present educational programs for staff and the public
  • Works with community groups involved in invasive species removal, vegetation control, natural area management
  • Prepares grant proposals and work with groups to fundraise for support of natural areas
