Welcome to the Mayne Island Conservancy Society (MICS). Formed in 2003, our mission is to foster harmony between nature and community on Mayne Island BC. Staff and volunteers further this mission through offering general education and hands-on experiences for Mayne Island residents and visitors related to preserving the ecological integrity of the island for future generations. We also work to provide expert advice to government bodies on the ecosystems of Mayne Island.
Please browse our site to find out more information about our education and stewardship activities, our events and projects, information on ecological issues and also how you can help us with our mission. If you have any comments or questions you can contact us via phone (250-539-5168), email (email@example.com), or pop by our office at 478 Village Bay Rd.
