The property hosts an impressive collection of species, several of which are provincially and/or federally listed species-at-risk.  Bighorn sheep use this property extensively over the winter months. The ewes raise their lambs on the property as it offers protection from predators. There is a small colony of Yellow-bellied marmots on the property, which are a prey source for coyotes and bobcats.

The combination or rocky terrain with sagebrush steppe provides good capacity for snakes, such as Western rattlesnake and Great Basin gophersnake.  Several birds are known to nest here, including White-throated swift, Say’s Phoebe, Common raven, Red-tailed hawk, Cliff swallow and Brewer’s blackbird.
