About THE RUBY LAKE LAGOON NATURE RESERVE SOCIETY
The Ruby Lake Lagoon Nature Reserve is a 10-hectare reserve featuring a freshwater lagoon and forested acreage on the Sunshine Coast, northwest of Vancouver, BC. It is home base for the Ruby Lake Lagoon Nature Reserve Society. Each May, the Society hosts the annual Ruby Lake Wood Duck Wilderness Festival which celebrates the natural world and is a popular community event. Since 2003, the focus of the Society has been the construction of a first class Field Studies and Interpretive Centre in the Ruby Lake Lagoon Nature Reserve.
