Facilitating the protection and restoration of species and ecosystems at risk on BC’s South Coast
There have been a number of efforts to map out the ecological values of the South Coast's landscapes from the historic vegetation surveys of the Lower Fraser from the 1890's to the soil maps of southern BC. Captured here is a sampling of the resources out there representing a snapshot in time of the Lower Mainland's past ecological capital, providing a reminder of how much has changed and been lost over just a couple of generations.
Where available we have also included the pdf's of the associated notes and reports ("attribute data") that accompanied the maps or from which the maps were derived.
Special thanks to Environment Canada-Canadian Wildlife Service for making many of these available.
