Beaver Creek Conservation Area is where prairie creek meets prairie river, a microcosm of the Meewasin Valley and home to an amazing diversity of wildlife! Conservation areas like Beaver Creek, are designated areas that are set aside to protect and enhance natural ecosystems and unique cultural resources. These important areas also provide habitat for rare, threatened and species at risk and contribute to a larger inter-connected corridor for wildlife.

The activities permitted on site are a different from a recreation area or park space. Practice stewardship when you visit this special place and help Meewasin keep Beaver Creek healthy and vibrant for current and future generations to come.

Here a few things to keep in mind while visiting:

Take a pic, don’t pick – Everybody enjoys wildflowers and it’s fun to pick up sticks while exploring the trails, but everything must be left behind. Take a picture instead, it will last longer!

Stay on the marked trails – This helps to protect the sensitive habitat of the creatures that make Beaver Creek their home.

The trails are for hiking – A reminder that the trails at Beaver Creek are meant for hiking, so please leave your furry friends and bikes at home (dogs and bikes are not permitted). If you are looking for dog-friendly nature experiences, you can visit other Meewasin sites such as Cranberry Flats Conservation Area, Chief Whitecap Park or Sutherland Beach.

Pack-it-in and pack-it-out – Your lunch and snacks may be tasty but please take your litter home to keep this special place clean, vibrant and healthy.

Hand-Feeding Chickadees – Black oil sunflower seeds are best for these feathered friends! Talk to Interpreters at Beaver Creek to ask for their preferred seed and please don’t bring your own wild bird seed mixes. A note that while the ground squirrels and chipmunks on site are really, really, cute please don’t offer them food – unlike the chickadees they can become dependent on this food source and can become aggressive.

If you have any questions about what you can do on site, please contact our friendly interpretive team at 306-374-2474.
