The goal of Friends of Beacon Hill Park is "To Promote & Protect the Natural & Cultural History of Beacon Hill Park."
Beacon Hill Park was set aside as parkland by Governor Sir James Douglas before 1858.
The park is a historical treasure and one of the last refuges in Greater Victoria for some of the area's most delicate and endangered native plants and ecosystems. The Garry Oak tree and the Garry Oak meadow are two prime examples of the plants and ecosystems that the Friends of Beacon Hill Park Society are actively trying to preserve.
