Presentation Title

A Case Study of Burn's Bog: Issues with Land Reserves and Urbanization

Format of Presentation

Poster to be presented the Friday of the conference

Abstract

The rural-urban fringe topic which we are working on is based on analysis and research of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), in Delta, BC. Specifically, we are focusing on three key aspects: a) an outline of the history of ALR reserve land, b) specific focus on ALR and Urban land use relations, and c) contentions or issues that are present in the case study of Delta's Burns Bog which impacts its presence within the Rural-Urban Fringe. We will also compare the current land use of Burns Bog and Delta with that of ALR's in North America. In the research we are currently doing, methods such as article research, literature analysis and review, examining records of the Delta ALR reserve status and familiarity with how an ALR designation can be instituted or removed from places such as Burns Bog, we hope to determine how land use impacts affect ecologically sensitive areas in Canada. We are concluding our project with further suggestions and linkages to class material, and the future of the Burns Bog ecological area in Delta BC.
