Visit SILT Properties: Back Details of Skaha Lake Sheep Winter Range In 1989, the first piece of property that SILT put money into was a 28-acre piece just south of Penticton’s city limits on the east side of Skaha Lake that includes a small pond. The property is prime habitat for California bighorn sheep. Eventually, in collaboration with The Nature Trust of B.C. and several other partners, a total of 250 acres was purchased there and is held by the Nature Trust of B.C. 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.
