Geocache Description:


 

Nicolum River Provincial Park

 

Nicolum River was designated to Provincial Park status in 1956. It serves as the first roadside rest-stop and campground for visitors en route from the Lower Mainland to the Interior.

In 1846, Alexander Caulfield Anderson of the Hudson's Bay Company explored the valley occupied by the Nicolum and Sumallo Rivers in search of a route to the Cariboo (the Dewdney Trail). In the process, he set up camp in the vicinity of Nicolum River Provincial Park. The section of Highway 3 at the park was once part of the historic trail.

The park is situated in the Coastal Western Hemlock biogeoclimatic zone. Characteristic species associated with this zone and presently on site include coastal western hemlock, red cedar, and in well drained areas, Douglas-fir. The understory is sparse and consists mainly of sword fern, bracken, salmonberry, and moss species.

The significant wildlife species in the park are primarily songbirds and fish. These include varied thrush, black-throated grey warbler, red-breasted nutlatch, and Dolly Varden. Transient species in the area include porcupine, coyote, Columbia blacktail deer, and black bear.

                      This park is closed indefinately, but you can walk in.  There is no need for digging, just reaching in, as there is a natural hiding spot for this cache.  This is a small camo'd container with dollar store items, mainly geared to children.  FTF Certificate for anyone, and a FTF gift for first boy, and FTF gift for first girl, to find this cache.
