"Conserving farmland and wildlife through co-operative land stewardship."
Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust has developed six stewardship programs to address the challenges facing agriculture and wildlife conservation on the Lower Fraser River delta. The programs provide farmers with funding to establish wildlife habitat (grassland set-asides, grass margins, hedgerows, and cover crops) or invest in soil fertility (grassland set-asides, cover crops, laser leveling, and field liming).
By providing solutions to farmers that are compatible with their crop rotations, our programs are contributing to the availability of wildlife habitat and the long-term viability of local farming operations.

- Get To Know SOME OF OUR WILDLIFE:
- Northern Shrike Known as the "Butcher Bird," the Shrike impales prey on thorns to attract mates and mark its territory.
- Lesser Snow Goose Snow Geese congregate on farm fields by the tens of thousands searching for potatoes, grain, and grass.
- Bumblebee These insects benefit farmers by pollinating crops. They find refuges in Grassland Set-asides and Hedgerows.
