The warm percolating waters have created a fascinating micro-environment where over 250 species of boreal forest plants thrive. Sundews, butterworts, and fourteen species of orchids delicately spot the landscape. As well, the two degree (celcius) increase in air temperature caused by the springs creates a niche for plant species not usually found at this landscape.
The lush vegetation and warm waters in the surrounding marsh provide an excellent habitat for moose, waterfowl and shorebirds. Also Liard Hotsprings is home to a snail, the hotwater physa (Physella wrightii), and a small damselfly, the plains forktail (Ischnura damula), which lives nowhere else in British Columbia. This is also the reason why you will find the trail to Beta Pool to be closed for now.
