History of the Society

Established in 1978, the Sargeant Bay Society – officially known as the Society for the Protection of Sargeant Bay – 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 Cove Marine Provincial Park, 16 km west of Sechelt, British Columbia.
