    Area Data

    A beautiful open piece of land in British Columbia North might be characterized by rolling hills, lush green forests, and sparkling streams or rivers. The landscape might be dotted with wildflowers, and the air filled with the sounds of birds and other wildlife. On a clear day, one might be able to see for miles, taking in breathtaking vistas of mountain ranges and glaciers. This open land is the perfect place for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and fishing. With its unspoiled beauty and diverse ecosystem, it's easy to see why this region of British Columbia is so highly valued by both residents and visitors alike.

    Groundbirch is a community located in the Peace River Regional District of British Columbia. It is situated on British Columbia Highway 97, halfway between Dawson Creek and Chetwynd. The community is surrounded by the towns of Progress to the east and East Pine to the west and is situated 51m from Moberly Lake, 42.9 km from Dawson Creek.

    Dawson Creek is a city located at the foot of Bear Mountain ridge in British Columbia. It is the seat of the Peace River Regional District and serves as a service center for rural areas south of the Peace River. The city is known as the "Capital of the Peace" and the "Mile 0 City" due to its location at the southern end of the Alaska Highway. It features a heritage interpretation village, art gallery, museum and hosts events such as a fall fair and rodeo.

    Dawson Creek had a population of 12,323 in 2021. The city and its region operate on Mountain Standard Time all year around, meaning residents do not change their clocks. This is due to the area already having long daylight hours in the summer and short daylight hours in the winter.

    Dawson Creek has a climate characterized by warm and rainy summers with cool nights and low humidity, and very cold winters with moderate snowfall. Winter is the longest season, lasting from October to April, while summer lasts 2 to 3 months from June to August. Spring and autumn are short seasons, lasting 1 to 2 months. The city experiences a freeze in every month of the year, including summer, and precipitation peaks in July due to thunderstorm activity.

    Dawson Creek's economy is based on four major industries: agriculture, retail, tourism, and oil and gas. Agriculture has been the most significant industry in the city and is facilitated by the city's location as the regional transshipment point for agricultural commodities. The surrounding area is protected by the Agricultural Land Reserve, allowing for the cultivation of livestock and crops such as canola, hay, oats, alfalfa, wheat, and sweet clover.


    Powder King Mountain Resort is a 1-hour-50-minute drive away (162 km).


    Dawson Creek derives its name from the creek of the same name that runs through the community. The creek was named after George Mercer Dawson by a member of his land survey team when they passed through the area in August 1879.

    Once a small farming community, Dawson Creek became a regional centre after the western terminus of the Northern Alberta Railways was extended there in 1932. The community grew rapidly in 1942 as the US Army used the rail terminus as a transshipment point during construction of the Alaska Highway. In the 1950s, the city was connected to the interior of British Columbia via a highway and a railway through the Rocky Mountains. Since the 1960s, growth has slowed, but the area population has increased.

    After much speculation by land owners and investors, the Northern Alberta Railways built its western terminus 3 km (2 mi) from Dawson Creek. The golden spike was driven on December 29, 1930, and the first passenger train arrived on January 15, 1931. The arrival of the railway and the construction of grain elevators attracted more settlers and business to the settlement. The need to provide services for the rapidly growing community led Dawson Creek to incorporate as a village in May 1936. A small wave of refugees from the Sudetenland settled in the area in 1939 as World War II was beginning. The community exceeded 500 people in 1941.
