Acquired in 2001, the Burnett property is part of a network of conservation lands surrounding Coyote Lake. Since 1994, over 809 hectares (2,000 ac.) of land have been conserved in the area, forming a wildlife corridor between Coyote Lake and the Upper North Saskatchewan River Valley, roughly 40 km northeast of Drayton Valley.
Amongst the undulating terrain of this 256 hectare (635 ac.) property lay scenic stands of spruce, birch, tamarack and poplar, supporting a diversity of wildlife, including cedar waxwing, elk and American beaver. Songbirds and waterfowl also frequent the area, and can often be spotted along the seasonal wetlands that dot the property.
