The namesake of Oak Harbor, the Garry oak has suffered over the past 150 years as harvesting and development have drastically reduced Garry oak habitat. What remains today is fragmented and aging. Thanks to the efforts of a wide range of local stakeholders including city government, the US Navy, conservation nonprofits, and private landowners, there have been hundreds of new Garry oaks planted in Oak Harbor to ensure the legacy of the city’s namesake lives on for future generations.
