Wildlife and Habitat
This natural area is located in the transition zone between the Boreal Forest and Aspen Parkland regions, and therefore contains a wide variety of plant and animal life.
The site contains dense aspen forest, open grassland, wetlands and a lake. It is home to a range of iconic Canadian wildlife species, including moose, beaver, coyote, deer, fisher, fox, ruffed grouse, a breeding pair of loons, and is adjacent to a great blue heron colony.
Glory Hills is located within the Glory Hills Environmentally Significant Area. Wetlands on the property are part of a chain of wetlands that help filter and protect our water supply.
The surrounding areas are under pressure for country residential development.
