About Coyote Lake Nature Sanctuary (Warburg)

Doris and Eric Hopkins donated their spectacular piece of lakefront property to the Nature Conservancy of Canada with the dream of seeing it become a sanctuary for wildlife. Today, it is a haven for rare plants, animals and bird species. It has also become a refuge for people in
search of a quiet spot to enjoy nature. Nestled in a transition zone between the dry mixed wood boreal forest and the central parkland natural regions, the Coyote Lake area supports over 22 mammal species, 90 bird species, and 266 plant species including a number of rare and uncommon orchids and Columbian Watermeal — a species first recorded in Alberta at this site.

NCC acquired the Coyote Lake Nature Sanctuary 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.
