Saturna Heritage Centre
Discover the Stories of Saturna Island
WHO WE ARE
The Saturna Community Club is the oldest community organization on Saturna, having been continuously operating since 1932 and is incorporated as a non-profit society. The Heritage Committee of the Club operates the Centre. We are all volunteers.
Our collaborators include: Parks Canada (for the licence to occupy the FAB), the Capital Regional District (CRD) and Saturna Island Parks and Recreation Commission (SIPRC). Though the Centre is located in the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, we are separate from Parks Canada.
WHAT WE DO
We collect, create and display stories of the natural history, human occupation and use through time, and the contemporary community of Saturna Island.
HOW WE ARE SUPPORTED
We are a volunteer run organization funded primarily through donations, sales of Saturna-related merchandise through our store, and some government grants. We have no staff apart from student(s) funded for the summer tourist season by a grant from the Canadian Government through Young Canada Works and Museums Canada.
You can contribute stories, photographs and memorabilia. You can donate through our website and gift shop. You can shop for our books, flags, and other Saturna merchandise. Most importantly, you can volunteer your time and talents to support this work. Please do.
