Dean River Conservancy is a protected area on BC’s Central Coast.

Dean River Conservancy

Dean River Conservancy was established as part of the government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. The conservancy borders Tweedsmuir Provincial Park’s western boundary, providing ecological connectivity between Tweedsmuir Provincial Park and Jump Across Creek Conservancy.

The Dean River is one of the few Central Coast Rivers that cut through the coastal mountains, linking the Interior and the coast. Grizzly bears travel through the Dean from the Interior to access coastal fishing grounds.
