Dean River Corridor Conservancy

About This Conservancy

Dean River Corridor Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. The Dean River Corridor Conservancy encompasses the lower Dean River connecting the Dean River Conservancy to the ocean.

The Dean River is internationally renowned for its summer run steelhead fishing. A unique feature for tidal waters occurs in the conservancy where chum salmon spawn on the beach intertidal area and grizzly bears access spawning salmon and eggs along the beach. The conservancy contains significant cultural heritage values to local First Nations.

Conservancy Size: 3,508 hectares

Date Established: June 27, 2008


The conservancy is approximately 30 kilometres north of Bella Coola and 60 kilometres northeast of Bella Bella.
