Sue Channel Park was designated as a Park on May 17, 2004 following recommendations from the Kalum Land and Resource Management Plan.
Sue Channel is within a provincially rare biogeoclimatic subzone (CWHvh2 – Coastal Western Hemlock, Hypermaritime). The shoreline forests of the CWHvh2 subzone are unique. They are found in exposed coastal locations where the vegetation is affected by salt spray, waves, wind and growing on sand dunes, rocky headlands, marine sediments near freshwater drainages and on fluvial estuarine deposits.
The park’s shoreline forests and maritime interface habitat provide food sources and secure forested denning and nesting sites for such species as Mink, River Otter and Bald Eagle. At times Humpback and Killer Whales can also be seen in Sue Channel.
