The Pangman Conservation Reserve was purchased in 1994. It spans 607 hectares, and comprises many forests, wetlands, six lakes, the Lindsay Lake Road nature trail, as well as prime breeding habitat for the endangered Cerulean Warbler. It was purchased from the Rock Lake Association. Mrs. Hilda Pangman, knowing the value this property would have for teaching, research and conservation, as well as in honour of her nature-loving husband, made a generous donation of the full purchase price of the property. With the addition of Pangman tract, the QUBS landholdings increased by 50%.
