This year, Metro Vancouver will begin implementing a new management plan for the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, a 5,668-hectare land reserve south of the Seymour Reservoir in the North Shore Mountains.
The plan contains new strategies to address issues such as climate change, water infrastructure needs, and shifts in public use. The Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve will maintain its primary purpose as a future water supply area while protecting ecological health and engaging the public through a variety of education, stewardship, and recreation opportunities. The reserve is home to water utility infrastructure that is critical for supplying drinking water to the region.
Metro Vancouver will review and update the plan every five years to ensure it remains aligned with research findings and upcoming regional initiatives.
