Help us buy a river.
We have a rare opportunity to conserve 2 km of the Raven River, a renowned brown trout fishery. The Porter Conservation securement campaign is accepting donations to secure this 155-acre piece of wildlife and fish habitat.
About this Cause
“It’s very rare, in a settled area, to find a piece of land this big that hasn’t been disturbed significantly in any sort of way,” says ACA Biologist Kevin Gardiner.
And we’d like to keep it that way. Along with neighbouring ACA-owned site, that is 300 unbroken acres of old growth forest and thriving habitat, not to mention the nearly 4 km of the Raven River that flows through it. The Raven River is a world-class brown trout fishery “unrivaled in stream kilometres, trout abundance, and top-end sizes,” says Dave Jensen of Jensen Fly Fishing. “Seriously—it’s included in conversations of global brown trout destinations.”
We need your help. As the saying goes: “The only way to control what happens on a land base is to own it.” ACA has conserved hundreds of thousands of acres across the province and is hoping to add this special property to that number. Please donate so future generations can appreciate this property as much as we have.
