About Us

Area Wildlife

The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA) is home to many species of wildlife. From large to small we have them all. In fact, it is our primary guiding principle to “protect habitat and provide space for native species of wildlife through the careful management of the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area's natural resources.”

Want to increase your knowledge about ASCCA wildlife? You’ll find lots of facts on our insect, birdmammals, and reptiles & amphibians pages. These include an alphabetical list of all the animals found here plus more detailed pages on a few of our favorite species.

Want to see what lives at the ASCCA? Or maybe you’re trying to figure out the name of an animal you spotted while hiking on one of our trails. Look through our wildlife photo gallery to get yourself acquainted with the locals.

Also, if you’ve spotted an animal not yet listed on any of our pages, please feel free to email ASCCA with your wildlife addition. Or add your wildlife sightings and stories to our blog.
