Boote property (Penhold)

This 40 hectare (108 ac.) property, named after its former owners Godfrey, Archibald and Edward Boote, is one piece of a larger conservation project in the Pine Lake area. 25 km west of Penhold, the area is made up of aspen shrublands and seasonal ponds and wetlands that attract species such as moose, American badger, northern leopard frog, rusty blackbird and horned grebe.

NCC acquired the Boote Property 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.
