Protecting Victoria's Endangered Plants
with Thomas Munson

The City of Victoria has employed staff dedicated to protection and management of the natural areas of City's parks for more than a decade. A number of ecological restoration projects have been started in the natural areas since 2006, when the presenter started work with City of Victoria; many of these projects will be discussed, both the successes and failures, as examples of application of restoration science to Garry Oak ecosystems. Of particular focus will be a recent project in Beacon Hill Park, where Habitat Stewardship Program money has been received from Environment Canada over 3 years, to protect the habitat and enhance the populations of five red-listed plant species: Dense-flowered Lupine, Howell's Triteleia, Prairie Violet, Purple Sanicle, and Deltoid Balsamroot.
