The Serpentine Wildlife Area (SWA), is 105 hectares in
size, with approximately 80 hectares of dyked freshwater
marsh and 4 hectares of undyked salt marsh. There is a
public trail network along selected interior dykes and along
the Serpentine-River dyke. There are three viewing towers,
two of which are covered, providing visitors with excellent
views of the upland agricultural, old-field, marsh and river
habitats. SWA is managed by BC Environment.
SWA is one of many designated wildlife viewing sites
throughout British Columbia. For more information on this
