With 636 acres (257 ha.) of native grasslands, mixed hardwood forest and connective wetlands, the May property is an important wildlife corridor and diverse ecoregion. Based at the northwestern tip of Buffalo Pound Lake, 50 km north of Moose Jaw, the area is dominated by northern wheatgrass and western porcupine grass, trembling aspen and Manitoba maple. Threatened species recorded on the property include barn swallow, loggerhead shrike and Sprague’s pipit, along with a species of special concern, the bigmouth buffalo.
