Codd Wetland 

Codd Wetland

As an Ecological Conservancy Area, the priority for this site is ecological protection, not public use.  Acquired in 2004, the management goals for Codd Wetland are to understand, protect and enhance the ecology, biodiversity and habitat values of the wetlands of the Pitt Polder.

Other agencies involved in the purchase and management of the site are the Province of British Columbia, the City of Pitt Meadows, The Land Conservancy of British Columbia and Ducks Unlimited.

The purchase agreement calls for the preparation of a management plan for the area.  Until the plan is complete, the partners have developed and ratified a set of principles and directions to guide management and use of the wetlands. Some key directions are:

  • No public access. Where appropriate, wildlife viewing may be provided from adjacent upland areas.
  • All project partners will collaborate to identify management and enhancement opportunities.
  • Land management should maintain existing values and even restore and enhance such values.

Metro Vancouver will establish a planning team to consider and address such issues as encroachment, trespassing, land use on neighbouring properties, public education and awareness, invasive species inventory and control, management for species at risk, fish habitat, water access.
