“For 50 years, The Nature Trust of BC has been working to protect wetlands, like marshes, bogs and sloughs. We are currently working on acquiring land at Nicomen Slough. Nicomen Slough is a side channel of the Fraser River, which has some exceptional fisheries habitats. Young Chinook Salmon, river-rearing Sockeye Salmon, Coho and Chum Salmon, Steelhead and Cutthroat Trout spawn and rear within this important system. Nicomen Slough is also located in an area of continental significance to waterfowl, who stop in the area during their migrations. More than 100 trumpeter swans spend the winter in this area.”
