Vancouver Lake Lowlands Ph. 1 91

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

This property provides critical wintering areas for Canada geese, migrating sandhill cranes, other waterfowl, as well as bald eagles, owls, and hawks.
