This unique conservation site took root in 2011 when Glen and Kelly Hall partnered with ACA to purchase the land to create Timber Ridge. For the past nine years the land has offered healthy habitat for a variety of wildlife and grazing opportunities, and clean water for the headwaters of Nanton Creek and the users downstream.
Then — a rare opportunity to expand the site with a neighbouring parcel of land presented itself in the spring of 2020. Working again with the Halls, we are proud to announce a 320-acre (129.5 hectares) expansion. This move means the site has grown to over 1100 acres (445.15 hectares) of diverse grassland, mixed forest, and riparian habitats. These are critical spaces that give the site’s birds, moose, elk, white-tailed and mule deer, cougars, grizzly and black bears a place to continue to thrive. It is also home to several Species at Risk that include little brown bat and bobolink songbird.
“It feels great knowing that this land will be enjoyed by Albertan’s now and in the future thanks to this ranching family who is just as passionate about habitat conservation as we are,” says ACA biologist Tyler Johns.
