Author:

British Columbia’s largest wetlands contains 16 habitats and shelters more than 200 species, including the engangered bull trout, peregrine falcon and badger, according to the Ramsar Convention’s Web site. Native artifacts dating back 5,000 to 7,000 years have been found in the upper Columbia Valley, according to travel website Columbia Travel Outfitters, which arranges canoeing and kayaking along the river. The Columbia River Intertribal Fisheries Commission and the Shuswap Indian Band are listed on the website Columbia Wetlands Stewardship Partners.
