  • Little Saskatchewan River Conservation District - Conservation District Award
    the wildlife Examples are the bird savers that are mounted on the windows to keep the birds from flying into them and the maintenance of habitat for the beavers elk and frogs The land was protected by completing a conservation agreement with the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation Their reasons for doing this included peace of mind that the habitat is present in the future and that a small farmer would potentially be able to afford to buy the place The wetlands hold back water and nutrients and the bush stores carbon Maintaining the bush and wetlands have meant an ongoing battle with the beaver but it is the beaver that indirectly feeds the fire used to heat the house as fallen and flooded out timber is gathered for firewood Never afraid to try new things the Hammells have experimented with how to get the best quality feed for the Holsteins when it is difficult to get dry hay in the bush A beaver leveler was installed to try and address one of the many beaver dams It is the beaver that has changed the farm not the people Gord and Margaret have many good memories ranging from the sense of community that they share with their neighbours to the tastes of the food grown in their garden to the sounds of the elk bugling With their dairying years behind them the Hammells keep busy Another quarter section was purchased and improvements to the rotational grazing system have been completed Wetland plugs have been added Gord has spent many hours working to control burdock in the pasture Margaret is a board member on various boards and Gord continues to monitor waterfowl populations and serves on the Partnership Advisory Committee for the Alternative Land Use Services program in the Little Saskatchewan River
