Ecstall Headwaters Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision for the North Coast planning area.
The Ecstall Headwaters’ large cedar and spruce trees provide important habitat for grizzly bears and marbled murrelets. The headwaters are also the site of an important low-elevation pass that was used for travel and trade between the Gitga’at First Nation of Hartley Bay and the Coast Tsimshian.
The conservancy is located approximately 50 kilometres southeast of Prince Rupert.

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.
