Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team Society

Mission Statement

Originally formed in 1999 as a comprehensive partnership of experts, the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team Society (GOERT) is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the recovery of Garry Oak ecosystems, one of the three most endangered in Canada. GOERT accomplishes species and ecosystem recovery through: education and outreach to highlight their significant conservation value; addressing knowledge gaps pertaining to the status or recovery of at-risk species; and by undertaking on-the-ground stewardship to protect and restore these endangered ecosystems and the species at risk that inhabit them. We are proud of our many achievements to date – including our award winning Garry Oak Gardener’s Handbook – which could not have been accomplished without the hundreds of volunteers who support us.
