Anarchist Protected Area was established to provide increased representation of low elevation forests that are under-represented in the protected area system, including Douglas fir and ponderosa pine. The area will also protect a number of red and blue listed plant and birdspecies and is not, therefore, a recreational destination.
Public access is extremely limited.

BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories.
