The Nature Trust of BC has the opportunity to save a large grassland property spanning 1053 hectares (2,600 acres) which is home to rare and endangered species with your help.
Located near the community of Princeton, we are working to acquire this property in three phases. Phase 1 covers 447 hectares (1,100 acres), and most of it features native grassland. Only 1% of BC is covered with grasslands which provide habitat for 30% of BC’s species at risk. Grasslands support more threatened and endangered plants and animals than any other habitat type in the province.
Asp Creek runs through the centre of the property and it also includes a wetland and seasonal ponds.
The endangered American Badger has been seen on the northwest boundary of this property. The threatened Northern Goshawk and Barn Swallow have been observed near the western edge. In addition, Princeton Grasslands provides critical habitat for threatened Lewis’s Woodpecker and endangered Williamson’s Sapsucker, and important winter range for Mule Deer.
