Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Three provincial parks protect a wide diversity of ecosystems and terrain in the Lumby area. The Mabel Lake, Echo Lake and Monashee parks provide recreational opportunities like swimming, camping, canoeing and kayaking, fishing and hiking. Several species of birds, mammals, fish and reptiles can be spotted in the parks.
Mabel Lake Provincial Park
Mabel Lake Provincial Park is perfectly situated for a lesson in transition zone ecology. On the west side of the lake, the drier slopes of the Okanagan Highland, neighbouring on the Okanagan Valley, are covered in ponderosa pine.
On the eastern shore, a dense forest of hemlock, cedar and birch trees surrounds the park as the steep, wet slopes of the Shuswap Highlands range back to the Monashee Mountains.
