Upper Klinaklini Protected Area includes a portion of the middle reach of the Klinaklini River and is a valley bottom corridor surrounded by stunning glaciers and some of the largest mountains on the coast.
Encompassing an ecologically unique trans mountain valley, the conservancy provides low-elevation connectivity between moist coastal ecosystems and dry interior ecosystems. The corridor is a major flyway for migratory birds and a travel corridor for grizzly bears.
This conservancy was established pursuant to the government land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. No management plan has been completed to date for this conservancy. Efforts are underway to have a detailed plan in place as soon as possible.
