Spring is on its way and the rare and federally endangered northern leopard frogs will soon be moving from their overwintering grounds to their breeding sites over the dike. In order to give them the best chances to get to the breeding sites unharmed, the dike at the south end of Duck Lake, from the north end of Channel Road, will be closed to motorized vehicle traffic between March 15th and April 30th, as in previous years.
The motorized access restriction is an approved provincial regulation and can be viewed in the 2022-2024 Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for Region 4, Management Unit 4-6 (p.37). Please contact the regional offices for any questions:
Cranbrook: (250) 489-8540
Nelson: (250) 354-6333
Pedestrians, cyclists, and hikers are welcome to use the dike during this period.
