Darkwoods Conservation Area (Nature Conservancy of Canada): This 63,000-hectare (155,000-acre) conservation property was conserved in 2008 and expanded in 2019 and is the single largest private land conservation project in Canada. Spanning remote valleys, mountains and lakes, Darkwoods Conservation Area provides essential habitat for dozens of species at risk and also helps establish a cross-border wilderness corridor for a number of wide-ranging carnivores, including a key population of grizzly bear. The conservation area plays a central role in a network of parks, wildlife management areas and conservation lands that now encompass over 1,100 km2.
