Beaver Creek Conservation Area
Located 13 km south of Saskatoon off Highway #219, BCCA was established in 1979. An interpretive centre opened in 1984. A microcosm of the Meewasin Valley, it is located where a prairie creek meets a prairie river. It contains one of the few uncultivated short grass prairie sites in Saskatchewan. The beavers that live there play an important role in keeping the creek habitat teeming with wildlife. Beavers build dams that flood waters upstream, creating beaver ponds. Many plants and animals make their homes in these sheltered ponds. The interpretive centre and staff provide opportunities to discover nature during all four seasons along a selection of nature trails.
BCCA and the Meewasin Valley Centre are pleased to offer a variety of interesting programs to groups upon request, including children's programs, presentations, heritage walking tours and nature hikes.
