Seeley Lake is located within the Nass Ranges Ecosection, and the interior cedar hemlock biogeoclimatic zone. Its special feature is the marsh and wetland habitat surrounding Seeley Lake. Ecologically, this is a sensitive area and provides important habitat for a variety of waterfowl including loons, geese, ducks, as well as mammals such as beavers, muskrats and moose.
Bird watchers can enjoy some quiet time on the marsh-viewing platform overlooking Seeley Lake. You will find a wide variety of species in the marsh and woods nearby.
