Uplands Park and Oak Bay are on the ancestral territory of the Lekwungen people, known today as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We respect and honour their vital relationship with these lands and waters and how they have cared for them through countless generations, continuing to the present and into the future.
All welcome for the April 22, 2017 BioBlitz in Uplands Park: A Sampling of Uplands Park BioBeauties from April 15, 2017 Photo Ramble.
April 15, 2017. A beautiful spring day to explore Uplands Park. Sunshine and warmth. The April 22, 2017 Earth Day BioBlitz takes place the following weekend on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
The photos below, taken Saturday, April 15, 2017, reveal a very small sample of what awaits our BioBlitzers. Come and experience the beauty and wonders of Uplands Park in person. Who knows what might be in bloom in a week? Or in flight? Or just hanging out? A BioBlitz includes all species, not just plants.
