About Napier Lake Ranch Conservation Area

Napier Lake Ranch Conservation Area, south of Kamloops, is a mosaic of native grassland habitats. Located along a flyway for many bird species, Napier Lake Ranch occupies an important transition zone from grasslands to Douglas-fir forests. This variety of habitats makes it an ideal corridor for animals who migrate to different areas between summer and winter. Thanks to the conservation-minded family who has maintained the site, cows, grouse, birds of prey and other wildlife co-exist on this important linkage between other protected lands.
