Dall River Old Growth Park overlaps with traditional use areas of the Kaska Dena and Tahltan First Nations. The park holds significant spiritual value for First Nations. Although there is limited documented information, the area has high potential for cultural and heritage resources.
Dall River Old Growth Park lies west of the Rocky Mountain Trench and falls within the Cassiar Ranges ecosection. The park encompasses the valley bottom of the Dall River, downstream from Dall Lake. One biogeoclimatic zone, boreal white and black spruce, occurs in the park. The forested valley of this section of the Dall River contains extensive stands of old growth white spruce. Flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park’s natural heritage, please don’t damage or remove them.
The park contains important habitat for grizzly bear and furbearers. Stone sheep are common outside of the park in the rugged mountainous alpine valleys that drain into Dall River. Bull trout, arctic grayling, whitefish and northern pike can be found in the clear, blue waters of Dall River. Park users should always be aware of bears and other wildlife in our park environment. Never feed or approach bears or other wildlife. For more information on bear safety, click here.
