Natural Range Barriers are TOPOLOGICAL, VEGETATION &/or WATER BARRIERS. Barriers may function to ensure livestock containment within legal (Tenure) grazing boundaries. Vegetation and Water barrier data have special access restrictions. Specifically, Water and Vegetation natural barriers may be temporally effective as barriers against cattle movement because changes to the barrier (eg. water - levels rise and fall; vegetation - areas are logged) occur. Please follow-up directly with the District Range Officer. There is a list of contacts available at: https://www.for.gov.bc.ca/hra/contacts.htm
