Nature Conservancy of Canada inks massive land deal

The Nature Conservancy of Canada is launching a “once in a generation” project in the wake of a 6,700-acre private land donation.

The property is northwest of Winnipeg in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands, on the shores of East Shoal Lake. The NCC wants it to become an accessible conservation area that will engage local residents, provide ecotourism opportunities and connect visitors to nature.

“To date, it’s the second largest secure land project that we’ve done,” says Tim Teethart, a natural area manager for NCC.

The conservancy manages a tall-grass prairie reserve in what it calls the north block, which is just over 7,000 acres. Teethart says it took about 30 years to build up that land base.
