Poppy Barley & NCC Partnership

You have an opportunity to contribute to a project of international significance. Located in the Crowsnest Pass, the Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor is a legacy project that honours Alberta’s late Premier, Jim Prentice and his commitment to conservation. The corridor is roughly 5 kilometers wide from east to west and will connect crown forest reserve lands in the north to the Castle parks network, as well as to Waterton Lakes, and Glacier National Parks to the south.

The pass naturally funnels wildlife like grizzly bear, cougar and elk north and south through the Rocky Mountains and across Highway 3 – conserving a wildlife corridor through the Crowsnest Pass will benefit wildlife that travel through the Rocky Mountains in Canada and the United States. This natural link between protected spaces has been a priority of environmental organizations for decades.

Thank you for choosing to donate to the Poppy Barley & Nature Conservancy of Canada partnership to fund the Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor. Every contribution brings us one step closer to reaching our $30,000 goal. Donate below and NCC will issue you a tax receipt for donations over $10.
