0.87 Hectares Located on Pender Island, Covenanted in 2000
TLC purchased this South Pender Island headland known as Gowlland Point. This property, adjacent to the recently protected Brooks Point, is crucial to the completion of a conservation vision aimed at preserving the very beautiful and ecologically sensitive landscape at the tip of South Pender. The area has been identified as an acquisition priority by the Capital Regional District (CRD) in its Parks Master Plan. It has great natural beauty, very high wildlife values and the site is known by the community as one of the finest recreational areas in the Gulf Islands. It is easily accessible to people of all ages. From its spectacular shoreline of wave eroded rock Mt. Baker dominates the southeastern horizon and seabirds such as harlequin ducks, surf scoters, Heerman’s gulls, terns, jaegers, oystercatchers, murres, murrelets, and auklets can be easily viewed. Pods of killer whales are often seen offshore and seal, mink, and otter are commonly sighted. The grassy headland also supports an abundance of rare native plants including one of the most profuse shows of chocolate lilies on the Gulf Islands.
