Blaney Bog Park Reserve
(District of Maple Ridge)
This 92 Ha site is part of the tidally influenced Pitt River Valley wetlands that were once one of the largest inland estuarine habitats on the BC coast. Blaney Bog, along with the Codd Wetlands, represents the largest off-channel salmon rearing habitat within the Allouette River watershed and one of the last in the Fraser River’s lower reaches. Blaney Bog is characterized by a regionally significant peat bog surrounded by a unique combination of fen, riparian shrubland, riparian forest and creek habitats. This diversity of habitats supports a wide variety of fish and wildlife species, some of which are listed provincially as rare and endangered.
