Dawson Creek is located in The Boreal Plains Ecozone. It is part of the flat Interior Plains of Canada, a northern extension of the Great Plains of North America. The subdued relief consists of lowlying valleys and plains stretching across the mid portions of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and continuing through almost twothirds of Alberta, including the South Peace. The majority of the surface waters are part of three watersheds: those of the Saskatchewan River, the Beaver River, and Peace, Athabasca, and Slave rivers’ watershed. The ecozone has traditionally been viewed by some as the next untapped resource frontier. The ecozone’s relative remoteness and absence of large population centres has resulted in little comprehensive scientific study. To explore, produce and deliver the potential oil and gas products believed to be buried under the ecozone, vast road, railway and pipeline networks have been developed and thousands of kilometres of seismic exploration lines cut through the forests, providing access to previously remote areas. The Peace Lowland ecoregion is characterized by a unique climate, marked by warmer summers than the surrounding areas. The mean annual temperature is 0.5°C. The mean summer temperature is 13°C and the mean winter temperature is -14°C. The mean annual precipitation ranges from 350–600 mm.
