Visit SILT Properties: Back Details of Haase Pond In 1996, SILT spearheaded the purchase of Haase Pond in Kelowna. It’s located adjacent to Mission Creek, and has significant fish and wildlife values. It’s part of the second phase of the popular Mission Creek Greenway and the regional district now holds it as a wildlife sanctuary in perpetuity. 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.
