People may think small lakes are all the same, or that there are so many of them we don't need to worry about protecting them. On our field trips we learned how important, and how vulnerable, small lakes are.
Small lakes are miniature ecosystems, each one as individual as a finger-print. There are thousands of small lakes scattered across British Columbia, each different from the others around it. They vary from cold, clear mountain tarns to dark, acidic muskeg lakes with tea-coloured water, saline pools, white with salt, and cool, clean valley bottom lakes.
