Hatzic Lake, an oxbow lake, formed by an old meander of the Fraser River is located in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia approximately 7km east of Mission, B.C. and is home to a diverse group of birds, fish, and animal species.
Hatzic Lake Improvement Society is a registered non-profit society and a member of the British Columbia Lake Stewardship Society (BCLSS). With the help of BCLSS and partially funded by the BC Government, our society is undertaking a sampling program at Hatzic Lake to guide future initiatives at our lake. Our group aims to facilitate improvements at Hatzic Lake by developing clear goals and objectives, lobbying and working with government to manage invasive species and pollution (run-off), obtaining and managing grants to help implement projects, and to continue lake monitoring to determine where best to focus our efforts.
