Crooked Horn Farm Wetland Restoration Project

A wetland restoration project on private land at Crooked Horn Farm in Winlaw, BC was initiated by the Slocan River Streamkeepers in 2016 and completed in Summer 2017. We gratefully received funding from the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program and National Wetlands Conservation Fund for the project.  This wildlife enhancement project has specifically consisted of creating habitat for a diversity of species including amphibians and painted turtles and also adding some bird boxes and bat houses.  (The Streamkeepers had previously implemented an adjacent riparian restoration project including in-stream fish habitat structures on the property in 2013.)

The project is located adjacent to Slocan Valley Rail Trail, hence it affords opportunities for public education and raising awareness of the importance of wetlands.
