Many of the Ecological Reserves in British Columbia are located on the traditional lands of indigenous peoples of the province.(   We are grateful to the Traditional Ecological Knowledge ( TEK) in preserving our natural areas in the past and the present and for the scientific knowledge that has led to the designation of many of these unique places.

We are grateful for many individuals who have helped in providing resource material and images for this website. For those with on-line sources, we urge you to visit their web sites. 

In particular  we appreciate the work done by Tom Gillespie, Friends of Ecological reserves Board member,  who for many years was the webmaster of the Friends of Ecological Reserve website.
