The Maclure Wetlands were donated to FVC in the fall of 2008. The wetlands provide homes for many species including the Provincially blue-listed Mountain Beaver, Green Herons, and Red-Legged Frogs and is a potential habitat for the red-listed Pacific Water Shrew.
Chickadees, Waxwings, Red-Winged Blackbird, Stellar’s Jay, Flickers, Fox Sparrow, Hawks, Mink and many types of Ducks and Raptors also utilize the Maclure Wetlands for nesting sites and hunting grounds. It also acts as a corridor between properties within the City of Abbotsford, allowing coyotes and other mammals to migrate and hunt.
FVC recently received funding from Environment Canada EcoAction Community Funding Program and the RBC Blue Water Project Leadership Grant to help preserve the existing biodiversity and restore some of the degraded habitat to its full potential.
