Dutch Creek Hoodoos Conservation Area (Nature Conservancy of Canada): The Dutch Creek Hoodoos protects ecologically and culturally significant hoodoo formations in the Columbia Valley. The 25-hectare (62-acre) property also is part of an immensely important wildlife corridor that serves as prime habitat for several at-risk species, including American badger, white-throated swift and Hooker’s Townsend daisy. The dry open forest on the benchlands above the hoodoos is used by many of these at-risk species, as well as more common animals, such as mule deer, white-tailed deer, and elk.
