Habitat Acquisition Trust is raising $1.4M to enable the CRD Parks to acquire 49 acres of urban forest located at 4692 Mountain Road in Saanich.
A local family has owned this almost 20-hectare (49-acre) forested property for nearly 50 years. Recognizing the ecological and community values of the property, the family has been pursuing a permanent conservation option for this urban forest for many years. Now, partnering with the Capital Regional District (CRD) and Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT) the family has entered an agreement to sell the property so that it can be permanently designated an urban forest park.
