Lisa Baile Nature Reserve is a 4-hectare nature reserve located adjacent to an existing group of protected lands to create 13 contiguous protected hectares and was acquired in February 2021 through a donation by Lisa Baile. Take a tour to see protected area locations here: https://islandstrust.bc.ca/conservancy/protected-places/

Lisa Baile Nature Reserve is home to a mixed mature forest of largely Douglas-fir and western redcedar, and rises steeply to a ridge with small rocky bluffs and Garry oak and arbutus woodlands, with patches of native wildflowers such as fairy-slipper, camas (a lily), chocolate lily, and fawn lily.
