Visit SILT Properties: Back Details of Cold Creek Property This 50 acre property was purchased in 1998 by SILT and includes several different Similkameen Valley habitats. It is located just west of Keremeos and includes Similkameen River frontage with black cottonwoods. It also provides access to steep upland Crown lands which are habitat for California bighorn sheep, goats, deer and rattlesnakes. The property includes not only a typical dry, open, rocky hillside, dotted with sagebrush, cactus and pine trees, but also a spring-fed year-round creek. [Show as slideshow] YOU CAN HELP SILT is a registered non-profit society and tax receipts can be issued for donations of cash or property or bequests from estates, so consider making a tax-deductible donation of money or land or including the society in your will, in order to further our common objectives of conserving habitat for the Okanagan’s wildlife. Learn more about how you can make a difference. SILT has no paid staff, so all donations go directly to fulfilling the society’s mandate of purchasing and restoring habitat for fish and wildlife. Instead it is operated by a volunteer board of directors.
