66 hectares located in Langley, covenanted in 2009
The property is special for a couple of reasons. First, it is a large, relatively undisturbed greenspace – one of the largest unprotected areas of natural vegetation in the municipality. Second, it is unique because of the variety of habitats. The area contains several creeks, a large shallow-water wetland and a bog. Nearly 170 different species of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, 22 of which are endangered or threatened, call this area home. The main channel of West Creek runs through the property; this creek is one of BC’s 14 designated “sensitive streams,” with healthy stocks of Coho and Chum salmon and small but stable populations of resident and sea-going Cutthroat Trout. Wood Duck Lake, in the northern half of the property, contains an active population of beavers.
