Witt Property (Elkwater)

The Witt property was once a part of the historic Reesor Ranch before it was purchased in partnership by the Nature Conservancy of Canada and Ducks Unlimited Canada. Located on the north edge of Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, this 169 acre property provides habitat for passing wildlife, as well as an additional buffer from development along the park. Today the property is still part of a working landscape where cattle ranching and conservation go hand-in-hand. The property also features healthy native fescue grasslands and hosts a large wetland complex, which is home to a diversity of waterfowl like the red necked grebe.
