Many thanks to Ryan Senechal, President of the Garry Oak Meadow Preservation Society, and everyone who attended this speaker series presentation. The event was recorded and is posted below (PPT slides are coming soon). We have also posted instructions on how to best collect Garry oak acorns and deliver to the GOMPS nursery to help with the preservation of the Garry oak tree.

Garry Oak Acorn Collection for fall 2023
Please limit the volume of acorns/nuts to a total of 1 litre per person per region. Imagine a milk carton full of clean, float tested acorns/nuts! We want diversity – not quantity. Our nursery project aims to protect the genetics of Garry oak (Quercus garryana) trees in all areas of the CRD.
Acorns with caps are not ripe and should not be collected.
If you have questions or comments for us please email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will connect with you using either email or telephone.
Please note: We are only calling for acorns/nuts – if you have seedlings to donate please read our GOMPS Seedling Donation Policy.
