(Natural Resources Conservation), M.L.A. student, University of British Columbia Abstract: Burns Bog is a unique, urban wetland in the Fraser River delta, less than 15 km from the city of Vancouver, British Columbia. This article uses the geographical, botanical, anthropological and political history of this local ecosystem to explain the significance of the Bog and the major threats to its continued existence. There are several possibilities for ecological restoration, but water table and drainage issues and exotic species control seem to be major priorities.
