Thanks to the vision of our partners and the long-term commitment of area ranchers, more than 100 square kilometres (32,000 acres/13,000 hectares) of the stunning landscape bordering Waterton Lakes National Park, including this property, have been protected as conservation lands forever. The Waterton Park Front is one of the largest private land conservation initiatives in Canadian history. This area of secured land provides a natural buffer for the biologically sensitive park area which faces serious pressure from human activity.
The A. Russell easement is located approximately 9 km north of Waterton Park, nestled west of Highway 6. The property lies between the main Cottonwood and Dungarvan Creek drainages.
