Have you ever wanted to leave a legacy of conservation?
One that will forever be on the landscape?
Now is your chance to take part and make an impact for the future.
The Wild Sheep Society of British Columbia is taking your conservation dollars to the next level, with our new “Adopt a Property- Granby B.C. “ campaign.
With your help, the WSSBC will enter into a purchase agreement supporting the Southern Interior Land Trust to acquire a property located just outside Grand Forks, British Columbia.
This location encompasses 269.9 acres of open, rolling bunchgrass grassland interspersed with patches of trembling aspen-rose thickets and scattered black hawthorn shrubs. Ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir cling to the steep north-aspect valley sides of Morrissey Creek. The property is excellent deer spring range and as year-round habitat for bighorn sheep. The songful meadowlark is common in spring and summer.
Several other species call this place home, including rattlesnake, gophersnake, spadefoot toad, tiger salamander and badger. Some of these species are considered at-risk right here in British Columbia.
With your help, they will be protected for the future.
We need to raise $50,000 by January 25, 2020 to ensure this acquisition goes ahead, and right out of the gate the generosity of our membership has committed $5,000.
As of January 25 2020, our membership has donated $32,030 !
A huge thank you to those that donated to this project.
This is your chance to donate a piece of land to the species we all know and love.
Even $5 can make a difference.
Donations over $100 made through WSSBC to SILT for the land purchase will receive a charitable tax receipt from SILT.
To add to this, your donations are Monarch eligible.
