Infrastructure / Site Cleanup
Help improve habitat connectivity in the Crowsnest Pass! Whenever possible the Nature Conservancy of Canada works to remove unnecessary fencing from our conservation lands that prevent a barrier to wildlife movement.
Join at the Bohomolec Property as we work to remove a stretch of barbed wire fence in an important wildlife corridor across the Crowsnest Valley, and for a guided wildflower walk with a local flora expert.

This 126 hectare (313 ac.) property is part of a significant wildlife corridor across the Crowsnest Valley, known as NCC’s Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor. Secured in 2008 from a donation, it contains critical habitats for wildlife such as elk, grizzly bears and bighorn sheep. This diverse landscape supports a variety of vegetation communities, including coniferous forests, native grasslands and mixed wood forests.
NCC acquired Bohomolec (Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor) with the assistance of the Government of Canada’s Natural Areas Conservation Program (NACP), a unique public-private partnership to accelerate the pace of land conservation across southern Canada.What you will be doing
