Saskatchewan

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) first project in Saskatchewan occurred in 1982 with the acquisition of 157 acres (64 hectares) in Qu’Appelle Coulee, located 15 kilometres (10 miles) North of Wolseley in southern Saskatchewan. This area consists of upland native grassland, mature American elm, Manitoba maple and green ash along the coulee. When acquired, this area was the second ecological reserve in the province. Since then, NCC has completed more than 205 projects in Saskatchewan and is conserving more than 132,549 acres (53,641 hectares) of the province’s most ecologically significant land and water. The Saskatchewan Region continues to work with its partners to protect and steward Saskatchewan's natural heritage.
