Ross Creek (F4-20)


Site Details

This 1,097 acre site is approximately 15 km east of Medicine Hat along the Trans-Canada Highway. There is a small subdivision in the northwest corner of NW 09 that is not part of this site. This site conserves native prairie and enhances habitat for game species, such as pronghorn, sharp-tailed grouse, and ring-necked pheasant, and for species at risk, such as Sprague’s pipit and northern leopard frog. Over 600 acres consist of native grass communities, and nearly 300 acres comprises a mix of riparian vegetation along Ross Creek, tame grasses and ephemeral wetlands.
