Browne Lake ER #51 Purpose Statement
Primary Role :
The primary role of Browne Lake Ecological Reserve is to protect a small wet meadow ecosystem and surrounding forest in the Interior Douglas-fir – Montane Spruce transition. The wet meadow, once used as pasture, is reverting to the original sedge community. A rock outcrop on the central hill holds a small seepage-influenced community with yellow-listed Lewisia pymgaea .
Representative values are low. There are no known rare species in the reserve.
