Restoration Bay Conservancy
About This Conservancy
Restoration Bay Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision for the Central Coast planning area. Restoration Bay is the location of one of a few post-contact maritime archaeological features on the west coast of North America: Captain Vancouver’s ship was safely beached for repair and maintenance work at this site in 1793.
A pocket of cleared beach and rock piles are visible at low tide. This conservancy also protects First Nations’ cultural heritage values, including a high concentration of culturally modified trees.
