Det San Ecological Reserve protects rare and sensitive grassland and savannah ecosystems on a steep south-facing slope. This ecosystem provides critical winter and early spring range for deer. It is also an excellent habitat for moose as well as resident and migratory songbirds. Det San is the Wet’suwet’en name for “juniper”, as the ecological reserve contains a regionally rare example of old-growth juniper.
Ecological reserves protect special natural ecosystems, and support research and education. They are not intended for outdoor recreation. However, this ecological reserve is open to the public for non-destructive activities like hiking, nature observation and photography. Consumptive activities like hunting, fishing, camping, or foraging are prohibited. Motorized vehicles are not allowed.
