Becher’s Prairie Provincial Park was established as a result of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan Goal 2 (Special Feature) process.
It contains grasslands of the porcupine grass ecosystem. This ecosystem is not known to occur in British Columbia outside of the Cariboo Region and no other protected area in the Cariboo Region includes representation of this upland porcupine grass ecosystem.
In the immediate vicinity of Rock Lake there is an area with associated waterfowl species and nesting habitat and a winter hibernation area for the Western terrestrial garter snake and common garter snake that will be protected.
The park is located approximately 24 kilometres southwest of Williams Lake.
BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories. This park webpage may not adequately represent the full history of this park and the connection of Indigenous Peoples to this land. We are working in partnership with Indigenous Peoples to update our websites so that they better reflect the history and cultures of these special places.
