The geography and ecology of Manning Provincial Park is as varied as it is dramatic. Ranging from the wet coastal mountains, to jagged snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows filled with wildflowers in the early summer, to the chain of small lakes or broad, flowing river beds along the valley floors.

E. C. Manning Provincial Park is characterized by a wide diversity of plants, animals, soils and landforms. Many rare and endangered species depend upon the large areas of protected habitat within the Park. E. C. Manning’s role continues to be that of one of British Columbia’s major recreation and tourism destinations, but equally importantly, an important protected area for the conservation of British Columbia’s unique natural heritage.
