Frayn Property (Blairmore)

Made up of 31 hectares (30 ac.) of wetlands, mixed forests and grasslands, this scenic property is nestled in the Crowsnest Pass, just outside the town of Blairmore. Before it was channelized, the Crowsnest River had cut directly through the property, leaving behind a unique landscape for species such as the western toad, American beaver and rufous hummingbird.

NCC acquired the Frayn 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.
