A Recreation Destination
A Vital Ecosystem
Given its natural mountain setting, its abundant recreational opportunities, its diverse fish and wildlife, and its proximity to major urban centres, CULTUS LAKE is a prime destination for lake and nature lovers. The Fraser Valley Regional District measures more than 3 million visitors per year to the watershed.
The ethic that underscores the beliefs and activities of the CLASS NETWORK.
The goal of CLASS is to preserve and protect the health of the lake and its watershed for the sake of the environment and for future generations. To do this we engage science and traditional knowledge to discover the nature of Cultus, to understand the factors that threaten the lake’s well-being, and to mitigate and possibly eliminate those threats.
We invite you to join us in our efforts to protect the ecological values of the Cultus Lake watershed.
Since October 2007, the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewards have addressed lake water quality by “building community” around the issues, bringing awareness and necessary actions. Facilitated by the Fraser Basin Council, all interests and sectors were brought together, each in their own way, to take action benefiting the Lake. Achievements include:
- Gathering information;
- Building community;
- Stimulating new scientific research to understand nutrient impact
