Visit SILT Properties: Back Details of Ginty’s Pond Ginty’s Pond, named after Ginty Cawston, is a 15.5-acre wetland located in Cawston. SILT acquired it in 1990 for its riparian value and to protect public access. It is also known as Lowe Slough. In 1992 the land was leased to the Ministry of Forests Lands & Natural Resource Operations to manage. [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.
