How many of us speeding up Highway 99 on our way to the more obvious attractions of Cheakamus Canyon and Whistler ever consider a visit to the Squamish estuary? Yet here, though beleaguered by industrial development, is a destination in whose estuarine sloughs, meadows and woodland are resources to sustain myriad wild creatures and delight the naturalist. To increase our appreciation, the Squamish Estuary Conservation Society has produced a brochure that may be found in the Howe Sound Inn (Brew Pub) lobby at the junction of Cleveland Avenue and Vancouver Street. Each of the society’s trails may be walked individually, but you may easily combine several to obtain a more comprehensive overview of the whole area. A good place to start on one such combination is at the end of Vancouver Street, which you reach by leaving Highway 99 (Sea to Sky Highway) at the main entry to Squamish and following Cleveland Avenue to its junction with Vancouver Street, where you go right to a parking spot adjacent to a map board.
