The Land Conservancy of BC, Near Greater Victoria

The Land Conservancy of BC, Near Greater Victoria 


Abkhazi Garden owned by TLC Victoria BCThis past week we visited the Abkhazi Garden along Fairfield Rd. in Victoria near the Oak Bay border, a truly amazing beautifully designed and maintained Garden that was purchased by The Land Conservancy in 2000. We will post a pictorial about our visit later, but our visit triggered our renewed interest in the TLC.


Usually known as TLC, The Land Conservancy is a non-profit, charitable Land Trust working throughout British Columbia.  TLC protects important habitat for plants, animals and natural communities as well as properties with historical, cultural, scientific, scenic or compatible recreational value.


Founded in 1997, TLC is modeled after the National Trust of Britain.  It is a democratic organization, membership-based, and governed by an elected Board of Directors (volunteer).  TLC relies on a strong membership and volunteer base to help maintain its operations. TLC has Saved over 300 properties to tallying over 125,000 acres of disappearing natural areas, historic sites, farms, ranches and places of community and recreational importance.


TLC Victoria BCThe Land Conservancy (TLC) achieves its conservation objectives by working in a non-confrontational, businesslike manner.  TLC works with many partners, all levels of government, other agencies, businesses, community groups and individuals to ensure the broadest support for our activities.  TLC is here for the long term.  TLC takes properties under their care, with the  goal to protect them in perpetuity.


Near Greater Victoria TLC Owns, Operates, Holds Covenants over and or Manages the following properties:


Over the next weeks and months we hope to visit and share impressions and stories from many of these amazing properties, and the Pfanntastic work TLC is able to accomplish all over BC and in particular around Greater Victoria.

Hi Joni,

These are some of the most amazing properties you will ever experience, but they are just those controlled by the Land Conservancy.

Our Regional, Provincial, Federal and Municipal parks are equally special and we will hope to start highlighting them over the weeks and months to follow as well.

We could make sharing information about Greater Victoria a Full time career, and not be able to complete it in our lifetime, there is such an amazing amount of beauty, heritage, and fascinating aspects to our region (our little corner of Paradise called Victoria).

Be sure not to kick that bucket for decades, and come to Victoria Soon, and from then on you will be back again and again.
