Several local groups are championing the importance of maintaining public access to Williams Lake, via historic trails leading from Purcells Cove Road to the lakeshore. This access is in danger of being lost forever, and your support for a petition is urgently needed.

86 hectares of land in Purcells Cove is proposed for rezoning and development Rezoning Map. While some may think this is a good opportunity for development, please take a moment to reconsider… and if you agree, sign Our Petition.

Get a chance to explore a part of the Shaw Wilderness Park, a new ecologically diverse green space that is 153-hectare in size. The walk will take you along the shores of Williams Lake, which is an urban, yet preciously wild lake. Fulton Lavender, a local bird identification expert from Williams Lake Conservation Company, will lead the walk, share his knowledge of key habitats for birds in this park, and share hints for your most effective bird-watching. Located on the edge of the Purcells Cove Backlands, this park is a home for many species of birds including the Common Loon, Bald Eagle, and numerous songbirds.
