Kingcome River/Atlatzi River Ecological Reserve was established to preserve unusual lodgepole pine, Sitka spruce, and alder swamps and associated open wetlands in a coastal alluvial and scape.
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.
