Cherry Meadows (Nature Conservancy of Canada): This 70-hectare (173-acre) property is located in the Rocky Mountain Trench near Kimberley, B.C. Cherry Meadows features forests of ponderosa pine and extensive wetlands. Walking trails wind through the conservation area, and Mather Creek flows through Cherry Meadows, connecting directly to Bummers Flats’ ecologically sensitive wetlands. Cherry Meadows supports species such as American badger, grizzly bear, bufflehead and westslope cutthroat trout, and flammulated owls and Lewis’s woodpecker have been detected nearby. In 2018, the Nature Conservancy of Canada began a wetland restoration project to rehabilitate the agricultural fields to their former status as productive, naturally functioning wetlands.
