Have you ever wanted to leave a legacy of conservation?

One that will forever be on the landscape?

The Wild Sheep Society of British Columbia is taking your conservation dollars to the next level, with our “Adopt a Property- Granby B.C. “ campaign.

With your help, the WSSBC, in February 2020, entered 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, this wild sheep habitat has been protected for the future.

 

In February 2020, WSSBC and it’s dedicated member contributed $50,000 to assist in the acquisition of DL 492.

Partners in this project included:

Wild Sheep Society of British Columbia
Southern Interior Land Trust
Brandow Family
Granby Guides and Outfitters

Our members and supporters directly contributed a phenomenal $31,925.  WSSBC contributed a further $18,075 for a total combined contribution of $50,000.  Thank you to all our members for all you do for wild sheep conservation.
