Breaking Down Barriers For Wildlife – POSTPONED
November 5th, 2016, 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM
Horod Moraine (Clear Lake), Manitoba
Infrastructure / Site Cleanup
Help us remove some old fencing that is acting as a barrier to wildlife! We share our land with a wide variety of wildlife, and some styles of fencing can create barriers or traps for animals and birds – sometimes causing severe injuries to wildlife and costly frustrations for landowners. By ensuring our fences are wildlife-friendly, we can reduce the likelihood of any problems related to animals passing over or under the fences.

This 196 hectare (486 ac.) project is located 30 km south west of Riding Mountain National Park, only slightly north of Battle Lake. Made up of rolling native prairie, bur oak woodlands, quaking aspen forests and extensive marshlands. The property supports a number of rare prairie plants, and provides habitat for waterfowl, forest birds and large mammals, including mountain bluebird, western grebe, American badger and the endangered monarch butterfly.
NCC acquired the Horod Moraine 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
