Oelke (Crowsnest Pass)

This property is a component of the Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor, which rests in the North-East corner of the Crowsnest Pass. Made up of open meadows and a rare mix of deciduous and conifer woodlands, the area is regularly visited by grizzly bears, Canada lynx, and mountain goat. This busy, 137 acre (55 ha.) plot provides wildlife safe passage along the Rocky Mountain foothills, just before intersecting with Highway 3.

NCC acquired the Olke 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.
