Reminder: motorized vehicle access to Duck Lake (at the north end of Channel Road) will be interrupted starting at midnight tonight, August 15th. The dike will re-open to motorized vehicle access on October 15th (at 11:59 pm).
The closure is necessary to help recover the last population of endangered northern leopard frog in British Columbia. The frogs particularly like to forage on the warm road surface in the evening and at night during the fall migration between the Duck Lake Nesting Area (wetland unit south of Duck Lake) and the Old Goat River Channel (that flows into Duck Lake), and are very vulnerable to mortality caused by vehicles.
During that period, people are welcome to walk or bike on the dike.
Thank you for your cooperation and for giving the frogs a break!
