7 Hectares Located in the District of Sooke, Covenanted in 1998
TLC was involved in a partnership with CRD Parks and other contributors to help purchase and protect this rehabilitated and natural estuary and forest ecosystem. Partial ecological inventories reveal that the park contains at least 107 species of native plants, including two rare species. Fifty-one species of birds have been observed, including the endangered purple martin. Coho and chum salmon return each fall to spawn in Ayum Creek. Stream restoration on Ayum Creek is being carried out under the direction of the Society for the Protection of Ayum Creek. Ayum Creek Regional Park is the southwest anchor for the proposed Sea to Sea Green/Blue Belt. The park provides a vital link continuing the protection of Ayum Creek North from the Sooke Harbour to the Galloping Goose Linear Park and north towards the Sooke Hills. TLC co-holds the covenant with the Habitat Acquisition Trust thereby ensuring the protection and rehabilitation of Ayum Creek.
Directions: Drive towards Sooke along Sooke Hwy., Ayum Creek Regional Park is located adjacent to Sooke Road, approximately 40km west of Victoria.
