Snail Nature Reserve

PSB-8-300x225The Snail Nature Reserve, previously South Fraser Way, is two acres (.8 hectares) of snail habitat that was donated to the FVC by South Fraser Way Development Ltd in the fall of 2007. The habitat supports the Pacific Sideband snail and the endangered Oregon forestsnail.  A large population of the threatened Pacific waterleaf also inhabits the property and adjoining park.

The property is made up of two ravines containing tributaries of Fishtrap Creek.  The protected area abuts Simpson Park and a restrictive fisheries covenant which together make up a large protected area of over 25 acres (10 hectares)  A management plan was completed for this property in October 2015.
