Cervo II property (Bellevue)

This 40 hectare (98 ac.) property surrounds the Leitch Collieries Provincial Historic Site and lies along the winding Crowsnest River. Its various, rugged terrain supports a diversity of vegetation communities, including Douglas fir and limber pine forests, grasslands and shrub lands, and supports many rare plant species as well, such as the linear-leaved scorpionweed. As an important wildlife corridor, the region is frequented by grizzly bears, cougar, elk and black bears, allowing for the species’ natural progression through the Rockies.
