Within the reserve, there are 19,463 acres (7,876.4 hectares) that have been developed into tame pasture. Leases to graze livestock are granted on the Athabasca riverbank which also provides habitat for wildlife. A 2,200 acres (890.3 hectare) area of land, that includes Dahlberg Lake, had been fenced off for recreational use and isn’t used for grazing.
Another area of the reserve, 1,120 acres (453.3 hectares) on the south-eastern portion of the reserve has been set aside to provide watershed protection for the Paddle River drainage system. There’s some grazing of livestock in this area, but no developed tame pastures exist and no development is planned.
