More Information

About Wakaluk, Bellevue

The Wakaluk property was purchased by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) in 2000.  Consisting of 160 acres, this scenic property is nestled right in behind Bellevue. This property lies within the Montane Subregion of the Rocky Mountain Natural Region and offers brilliant views of the town of Bellevue as well as Frank Slide.

What you will be doing

Volunteers will help us battle an infestation of downy brome on this scenic property in behind Bellevue. By hand pulling this invasive grass, we are moving one step closer to eradicating this noxious weed. This is a fairly relaxed activity, so bring your friends and enjoy some jolly conversation while lending a hand to the environment.

Why you will love it

Participants will enjoy the particularly stunning views from the ridge down on Bellevue and Frank Slide. Local staff will also lead volunteers on a hike of the property.
