It is literally where the deer and the antelope play.
Nature Conservancy Canada has purchased 65 hectares of private land near the Town of Dundurn for permanent conservation that deer, moose, and elk travel through regularly. Saskatchewan spokesperson for the NCC, Matthew Braun, says the original owner wanted it to be kept in its original condition and not be developed and that's the mandate of the NCC. The goal is to keep the area in a natural state for wildlife and for the public to enjoy. Along with the larger mammals roaming through the land there species of concern for the possibility of extinction, like the tiger beetle and some unique moths. A plant species of concern is the hairy prairie-clover. Braun says several other provincially important plant species have been seen in that area as well.
