To obtain protection status for vital and crucial fish & wildlife habitats along the Lardeau River corridor.
The Friends of Lardeau River’s key focus is in obtaining protection status for vital and crucial fish & wildlife habitats along the Lardeau River corridor. The Lardeau River with its crucial natural habitats is widely regarded as a significant wildlife refuge and landscape linkage. In terms of its fisheries values alone, the Lardeau River is internationally significant with respect to the spawning run of the Gerrard Rainbow Trout and important for Kokanee, Bull Trout and Mountain Whitefish. It is also a major feeding area for the Grizzly Bear, numerous Golden and Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Osprey, Marsh Hawks and Owls. It is a crucial den area for Cougar and a critical migration corridor for Waterfowl, Grizzly Bear, Wolverine, Elk, Whitetail and Mule Deer, Moose, Caribou and so many other wildlife species.
