Throughout British Columbia there are many undiscovered hidden "gems." These are some of the gems which I have discovered and would like to share.

Hidden Gems at Silverdale Creek Wetlands
Just west of Mission along the Lougheed Highway are the Silverdale Creek Wetlands. This was a partnership project including the District of Mission which created these wetlands and walkways. If one can tolerate the mosquito's (which must be expected when in this environment) one encounters almost unlimited wildlife. It is not unusual to encounter a number of blue herons as one wanders along the trails. In Spring one must keep a wary eye for Black Bear. In early fall the water channels are overtaken with spawning salmon and migrating ducks. Except for in Spring when the Fraser River is at flood stage the paths are usable at all times.
