0.42 hectares located in Abbotsford, Covenanted in 2000
This property is located in Abbotsford, BC. The property’s current use is residential. The non-covenanted area consists of two residential houses and decorative gardens, which cover about one-third of the two parcels. A gazebo and two small, man-made ponds are included in the decorative gardens. The covenanted area is almost entirely forested. Located in the Coastal Western Hemlock biogeoclimatic zone, the forest is mixed deciduous/coniferous with regenerating second growth. The most significant feature of the property is the small wetland in the northeastern corner. This area includes the blue-listed Pacific waterleaf. Overall, the significance of this property derives from the fact that it is a relatively undisturbed second growth forest in a district that is rapidly loosing its natural areas due to urban expansion. It is an important site since it provides habitat for many species of wildlife.
