Due to the semi-annual Northern Leopard Frog migration the south dike at Duck Lake is now closed to motorized vehicle traffic.

Northern Leopard Frogs are federally listed as an endangered species in the province of BC.   In 2018, after voluntary road closures were not successful at reducing road mortality, the semi-annual Motorized Vehicle Access Restriction was implemented by Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (MFLNRO&RD).

The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development approved the following Motorized Access Restrictions on the CVWMA at the south dike of Duck Lake. The regulation can be viewed in the 2020-2022 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis, MU 4-6, page 48. Please contact your regional office with any questions.
Cranbrook: 250-489-8540
Nelson: 250-354-6333

Pedestrian and bicycle traffic is still welcome on the dyke during the motorized vehicle restriction, however, please be alert and careful to allow Northern Leopard Frogs to migrate safely across the dike.
