Jump Across Conservancy was established pursuant to government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. The conservancy protects two moderate-sized watersheds located along the east side of Dean Channel.
Archaeological evidence, along with First Nation oral history, suggests that at one time there may have been as many as 30 First Nation villages along the Dean Channel. Jump Across Creek was one such site and may have been regarded solely as a sacred place. Petroglyphs can be found on foreshore rocks near the mouth of Jump Across Creek.
