Sage and Sparrow Conservation Area

Sage and Sparrow Conservation Area is located on the border between Canada and the United States. A crucial part of a migratory corridor for wildlife, the landscape includes grasslands, rocky outcrops, sagebrush fields, gullies and dry forests. The grassland habitat in particular provides refuge for many endangered species, including pallid bat, Western rattlesnake and American badger. NCC acquired the Sage and Sparrow Conservation Area 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
