Stair Creek Conservancy is a protected area on BC’s North Coast.

Stair Creek Conservancy

Stair Creek Conservancy protects Stair Creek watershed and contains steep, southeast facing forests, which provide a good example of productive old-growth forests containing yellow cedar, red cedar and hemlock trees.

The ground rises steeply from the north side of Douglas Channel in a series of relatively nutrient-rich hills made of folded and banded/layered metamorphic bedrock (schist and gneiss) which can be seen along the shoreline. Stair Creek, which runs through the middle of the conservancy, has waterfalls and is not accessible by boats.
