This project transferred 3,740 hectares of family ranch land back to the Colville Confederated Tribes for long-term stewardship and conservation management. This is the linchpin property in the east-west habitat corridor linking the Cascades to the Kettle River Mountain Range (and the Rockies beyond) for carnivores like lynx and wolverine. It is also vital to the north-south corridor linking the sage steppe of the Columbia Basin to British Columbia’s arid grasslands for a range of shrub-steppe species from the sharp-tailed grouse to badgers.
