Program Initiatives

Landscape Evaluation Project

The CRD is undertaking a project to identify areas with high natural values that represent the diversity of landscapes in the region and have the potential for connecting with existing parks and protected areas.

The CRD is engaging with First Nations, government agencies, stakeholders and the public to share our landscape mapping and evaluation. CRD staff hope to learn more about the natural values of this landscape and to find opportunities to incorporate local knowledge, public values and interests into the analysis.

This project will identify priority areas for potential future regional parks, focusing on lands west of the Sooke River within the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area. The information collected during this engagement process will be used to inform this work.

An online form is available until January 13, 2019 for the public to provide initial input.
