The Pitt-Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area
(PAMWMA) is 2882 hectares in size and is comprised of
two units, the Pitt Unit located north of Pitt Meadows,
and the Addington Marsh Unit located in northeast
PAMWMA lies along a major migration route of the
Pacific Flyway, and is among the largest waterfowl
reserves in Canada. The unique mix of marsh, raised
bog, bog forest, intertidal mudflats and upland forests
attracts a wide range of bird species.
The Pitt Unit has many kilometres of dyke-top trails with
three covered viewing towers, and a lengthy hillside trail
with three covered viewing pavilions. It should be noted
that the hillside trail is rough, and requires sturdy
footwear, and in wet and winter, weather can be slippery.
