District of Squamish and the Conservation Officer Service are reminding people that camping isn’t permitted in the estuary.
The district also reminds that dogs must be on leash at all times when dog-owners visit the estuary.
The use of motorized vehicles and campfires are prohibited. People are being asked to “tread lightly” at all times.
Signage has also been installed at the entrances to the Skwelwil’em Estuary at Main and Bailey Streets to remind residents and visitors that the Squamish Estuary is a Wildlife Management Area.
A Wildlife Management Area is designated under the Wildlife Act for the benefit of fish and wildlife species and their habitats.
Wildlife Management Areas are created with the primary purpose of maintaining and restoring fish and wildlife species and their habitats and are meant to be appreciated in a way that minimizes impacts to fish and wildlife and preserves the natural environment.
“While recreational activities are permitted, they are secondary to wildlife conservation,” the district reminds.
To report an offence or illegal activity, you can call the 24/7 RAPP line at 1.877.952.7277.
