22.3 Hectares located near Castlegar, Donated in 2001.

This 88 acre property is adjacent to Syringa Creek Provincial Park, 19km west of Castlegar. It contains a rare and unique variant of the Interior Douglas-fir biogeoclimatic zone, on a steep, open, southern exposure on Arrow Lake. Because of this warm southern exposure, this property provides important winter range for deer and other ungulates, including bighorn sheep. Variable topography and vegetation types contribute to its ecological value as they provide habitat for other species of wildlife, most notably cougars. This property was donated to TLC in 2001, to protect this rare vegetation community, enhance ecological integrity of Syringa Creek Provincial Park, and conserve habitat for bighorn sheep.
