Project Description

This proposal will secure in perpetuity a 160-acre parcel of wetland and associated natural lands in the Pine Lake landscape, Alberta, Canada. This will occur through purchase (fee simple acquisition), with title to be transacted and retained by NCC. Minor enhancement work is typically required to restore previously drained small wetlands (estimated 3.0 acres) and restore disturbed or cultivated lands to permanent grass (estimated 7.0 acres). The effect of this action is to sustain current population benefits for targeted species of breeding waterfowl, waterbirds, shorebirds and migratory landbirds by preventing real threat of habitat loss, fragmentation or degradation. This proposal is complementary and additive to existing PHJV programs, Bird Conservation Region #11 Plan, and international waterbird, shorebird and migratory landbird conservation plans.
