Hole in the Wall (Big Muddy)

Located north of the Big Muddy Valley, this 906 hectare (2,240 ac.) property is rich in grasslands, plants, animals and history. Hole in the Wall forms a part of the largest stretch of intact grasslands in Saskatchewan, attracting species such as burrowing owl, American badger, ferruginous hawk, northern leopard frog, Sprague’s pipit and the provincially listed rare white milkwort plant.

NCC acquired Hole in the Wall 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.
