This 35.4 hectare (87.5 acre) property is adjacent to our existing Skaha Lake Property complex which is included in the McTaggart-Cowan/Nsək’łniw’t Wildlife Management Area (WMA). This WMA is 6,491 hectares (16,033 acres) primarily secured for the protection and management of Bighorn Sheep habitat.
The topography throughout the parcel is ideal for Bighorn Sheep. It is generally steep with some flat benchlands interspersed throughout. The lower portions are grasslands, transitioning through mixed forest at the mid-level to rocky terrain at higher elevations.
This parcel is located in two of the most endangered biogeoclimatic zones: Bunchgrass and Ponderosa Pine. This property is important for supporting at-risk species such as Bighorn Sheep, White-throated Swift, and the Western Rattlesnake. It has the potential to support the endangered American Badger.
