The Sargeant Bay Society is a non-profit organization located on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada.  As environmental stewards, our Mission is to protect the natural habitat of Sargeant Bay, its watershed and neighbouring wetlands.

Established in 1990, Sargeant Bay Provincial Park offers a remarkable diversity of recreational activities, combining nature appreciation with an unforgettable physical outdoor experience.  It includes a sand and gravel beach, a wetland, a salmon-bearing creek, forest, a pristine forest bog and kilometres of multi-use connecting trails.

We invite you to learn more about the work we are doing to protect this ecologically sensitive habitat and how you can make a difference.

History of the Society

Established in 1978, the Sargeant Bay Society (SBS) began its work to support, enhance and protect the ecologically sensitive habitats found within Sargeant Bay, its watershed and neighbouring wetlands.

When Sargeant Bay became a Provincial Park in 1990, it was 57 ha in size.  In 1997 the park expanded to 142 ha.  In 2018, the SBS became stewards of the wetland habitat located at Smuggler’s Cove Marine Park, 16 km west of Sechelt, British Columbia.
