Your footprint in the wilderness.

Do you Mountain Bike, Horse Ride or Hike? Have you ever heard of trail braiding? Here’s what you should know...

Trail braiding occurs as alternate lines in the trail. Generally, Trail Braiding will occur around an obstacle like a puddle, steep section, or fallen tree. These “ride arounds” lead to double vegetation in that area, loss of habitat and erosion.

If you see this happening, grab some sticks, logs, and cover up the new line to encourage people to stay on the main trail. Make sure there is still a clear line-of-sight to prevent any injuries due to limited visibility.

Little Steps Make Big Impacts! Stay on trail! 🙌🏼

Happy National Walking Day!

Did you know walking in nature has a multitude of benefits? Some of which include an increase in oxygen intake and an increase in serotonin and the immune system. Walking also helps to reduce stress and muscle tension.

Lace up your shoes and let’s get walking!

Meet Jamie...

If you know Jamie, you know she absolutely adores her dog Dozer.

Jamie grew up in the Okanagan and began her career in Environmental Consulting there until moving to the island in August 2019. Since then, Jamie’s focus has been on environmental consulting for projects in the Victoria area.  Her favorite part of her job - working in the forest and getting to hold snakes. 

Jamie’s main duties include environmental monitoring and reporting, erosion and sediment control design, water quality testing, project management and preparation of CEMPs and EPPs.

Meet Jess...

Senior Biologist/Environmental Planner

“I can’t believe I get paid for this!” pretty much sums up Jessica’s enthusiasm for her work as a biologist.

Jess has a broad range of experience in impact assessments, regulatory compliance, spatial ecology, and biophysical inventory, specializing in wildlife biology and riparian ecosystems.

After completing a Master’s degree on rattlesnakes, Jess worked as an environmental consultant assessing the impacts of large linear developments on wildlife in Western Canada. In 2015, Jess returned to Vancouver Island to focus on projects closer to home.

These days, Jess works mostly on environmental impacts assessments and mitigation planning for developments on private land and in parks. Her work within that context varies widely from riparian assessments, to revegetation planning, to amphibian salvage, to butterfly surveys!

A true nature lover, Jess spends her free time enjoying our beautiful local beaches and forests with her dog.

Meet Jenn...

Administration/Logistics/Finance

Maybe working for an Environmental company was in the cards for Jenn. If her Grade 3 autobiography was any indication, her goal was to be a Wildlife Biologist. Jenn has lived in BC, Alberta and Ontario, but her time at Royal Roads getting her Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communications made her see that the island was calling.

10 years, a couple kids, and a cross country move later, she now calls Langford home. Jenn feels super lucky to be part of the Corvidae team and loves that her kids are now dreaming about a career as a biologist. Weekends are spent exploring the island with her kids, husband, and her soulmate Colby the dog.

Whether it’s on the water, on the trails or beach combing, there is no better place to live, work and play.
