Less than a mile south of Hamels Fabrics is a lovely river walk along the Vedder River. Keep on strolling west down the river walk and you will find yourself in the “Blue Heron Reserve” which is a 130-hectare site (325 acre) located on the floodplain of the Vedder River. Managed by the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve Society, the site is known for the breeding colony of Great Blue Herons as well as a wide variety of wildlife and vegetation. Fishing is also prevalent along the Vedder River.
Nearby is the popular Cultus Lake Provincial Park which is frequented every summer by campers seeking a woodsy destination with a beautiful Lake for swimming and boating.
