Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust
Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust is a non-profit organization that promotes the preservation of farmland and wildlife habitat on the lower Fraser River delta through co-operative land stewardship with local farmers.
Each year, Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust provides local farmers with $325,000 of cost-share funding through our Stewardship Programs. With this funding, farmers can invest in the long-term health of their soil while providing habitat for a diversity of wildlife, including birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway. These Stewardship Programs ensure an annual average of over 500 acres of Grassland Set-asides, 3,000 acres of Winter Cover Crops, and over 12 km of Hedgerows & Grass Margins.
