Many of the properties are keystone lands that fill in gaps in the protected landscape, allowing for wildlife migration and continuous open space.

‘In the area of Fall River Mills and the Hat Creek area, many of the Watershed Lands connect directly with already protected properties.  This provides for conservation continuity which allows for larger habitat protection and a more significant environmental impact.  The importance of connecting these puzzle pieces together cannot be understated.” Paul Vienneau at SLT
