Manyberries Creek Conservation Site
It is a rare opportunity to be able to purchase a quarter section of land in southern Alberta ranch country.
Most often, if land comes up for sale, it’s the whole ranch, which can challenge any and all collective budgets, or it’s sold to a neighbour without a sign ever hitting the corner post. When a property comes up that literally “checks all of the boxes” – you must act fast. One such opportunity arose recently and Pheasants Forever jumped all over it
Manyberries Creek Conservation Site is located approximately 70 kilometers south of Medicine Hat in the County of Forty Mile. The 160-acre property is 28 kilometers north of Silver Sage Conservation Site.
The property contains native habitat including grassland, shrubland and riparian habitat which is important to a variety of wildlife species. The area supports seventeen “at risk” species including sage grouse, Sprague’s pipit, chestnut-collared longspur, burrowing owl and is located in the critical sage grouse habitat area. The area is home to game species like mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn, moose, ring-necked pheasant and sharp-tailed grouse.
This securement will provide excellent recreational opportunities for upland game bird and big game hunting, trapping, hiking and wildlife viewing.
Pheasants Forever Calgary and Chinook Pheasants Forever covered a significant portion of the purchase price to ensure the property will be protected, in perpetuity. Alberta Conservation Association will hold title and manage the property long-term.
