This 126 hectare (313 ac.) property is part of a significant wildlife corridor across the Crowsnest Valley, known as NCC’s Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor. Secured in 2008 from a donation, it contains critical habitats for wildlife such as elk, grizzly bears and bighorn sheep. This diverse landscape supports a variety of vegetation communities, including coniferous forests, native grasslands and mixed wood forests.
NCC acquired Bohomolec (Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor) 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.
