Hats off to the people and groups who supported The Nature Trust of BC, allowing TNT to secure a 809-hectare grassland at Twin Lakes. Nature Trust president Doug Walker says the land is essential habitat for bighorn sheep, deer and many smaller mammals and birds. “This probably is the second largest parcel that we have acquired in our history. It ranks, as far as ecological value, as very, very high.” Walker says the property will link other conservation areas together creating a total of more than 2,000 hectares protected by the Nature Trust in the South Okanagan. “You’re able to do much more with the long-term management of the property than say a smaller parcel. So, you’re able to monitor the impacts of climate change and the impacts over time,” said Walker. He assures the public that they will still be able to use the land for hiking, fishing and hunting.
