Harbourview Park & Lynn Creek
Harbourview Park and Lynn Creek are environmentally sensitive areas directly adjacent to Lynnterm in North Vancouver. The Lynn Creek Estuary runs along the south end of Harbour View Park and the west side of Lynnterm East Gate. Western has supported Tsleil-Waututh Nation and BCIT Rivers Institute’s restoration initiatives in Lynn Creek over the past year through financial support and by providing more efficient equipment access to challenging areas along Harbour View Park to enable the required restoration work to be performed. Western fully supports the protection and preservation of Lynn Creek as an important waterway for fish, birds and wildlife habitat. For more details on this important project, please see the BCIT Rivers Institute site.
In partnership with CERCA, Western Stevedoring, Cowichan Bay Tribes, Department of Fisheries & Oceans, Pacific Industrial Marine and various other stakeholders created a causeway breach between the Kokisilah and Cowichan Rivers to enable salmon smolts access to eelgrass on their journey to sea.
