Nature’s Highway

The Slopes of Mt. Fernie

Because we are located on the slopes of Mount Fernie, our land acts as one of the last pathways for animals living on these same slopes to access the river. We are lucky enough to sit amongst one of nature’s great highways, where animals such as bear, moose, deer, and elk make their way back and forth between the mountain and river.

Along with this pathway between the mountain and the water, there is a migratory route that elk choose to use every year that wraps around the flanks of Mount Fernie. Our location means that we are fortunate enough to be able to see these animals in their own territory.

Sustainable Building

To preserve this habitat and not interrupt the flow of animals, we choose to build and develop sustainably so that we can live amongst the wildlife as it is our privilege to share the land with them. This is an area where the animals feel safe and protected, and it will remain this way.

This sustainability and respect for the land helps us protect the natural environment that is the exact reason that we choose to live where we do.

We all know that light creates life. It provides energy and warmth that is necessary for plants, animals and…well…us, to keep living. At Burma Road Estates, we are fortunate enough to have ample light. From when the sun first peaks above the horizon at the end the valley, to when it finally decides to drop behind the Lizard range at the end of the day, we get to take it all in.

Light on the Land

Light on the Land

Between the Forest and the River. The area of land along the bank of a river is called a Riparian Zone. This interface between a forest and a river is incredibly important for the health of the waterway and therefore, the plants and animals that call it home.

In a Riparian Zone, the trees of the forest shade the river and limit the temperature change of the waters which is vital for the health of fish and other aquatic animals. These same trees and other vegetation along the bank of a river also provide soil support and act as a biofilter to prevent erosion and pollutants from contaminating the waters.
