Important discovery in Wells Gray Park

2019-09-24T10:41:51-07:00Categories: News|Tags: , |

Important discovery in Wells Gray Park

“Earlier this year a small group conducting a caribou census for the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change found more than they were counting on during a flight over Wells Gray Provincial Park.”

“Ken Lancour, a Clearwater based pilot for Yellowhead Helicopters, and biologist Bevan Ernst, spotted an unusual feature in the ground in a remote corner of the park that would turn out to be one of the largest caves in the country.”

“After Lancour reported the find to BC Parks it was recommended he get in touch with Catherine Hickson, a geologist with the Royal Canadian Geological Society (RCGS), who quickly realized its importance after viewing photos of the cave.”

“Tod Haughton (of B.C. Parks) suggested (Lancour) get in touch with me because my long association with the park, so at the beginning of May, he sent a few of the photos and the location and as soon as I saw the photos I realized this as very significant,” said Hickson.”

Terrace BC Heli Tours

The beautiful city of Terrace is surrounded by scenic rivers and coastal mountain valleys. Perfect for sightseeing heli-tours!

Our summer sightseeing tours usually follow the valleys to the northwest of downtown Terrace. Short glacier tours can view Molybdenum Creek, the valley located between Mount Remo and Sleeping Beauty Mountain, while longer tours can view the northwest backcountry behind Sleeping Beauty Mountain, following the Kalum Lake valley back to the base.

Custom tours are also available for backcountry drop-offs and pick-ups or mountaintop picnics and proposals.

Terrace is the regional retail and service hub for the north coast area of British Columbia, with Highway 16 West/East Prince Rupert to Smithers and Highway 37 South to Kitimat connecting on the outskirts of the city in neighbouring Thornhill.

The Northwest Regional Airport for Terrace/Kitimat residents is about 15 minutes away from downtown Terrace and the Yellowhead hangar. The airport connects residents and visitors to Vancouver, Prince George and depending on the area industrial projects, Calgary. Westjet, Air Canada and regional airline Central Mountain Air have daily flights to Terrace. For more airport information, please visit www.yxt.ca
