Protecting the borders of the Blue Mountain Wilderness

Thanks to the generosity of two long-time Nature Trust supporters, we are proud to announce more protected land in the Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes region. In November 2023, Donald (Don) and Joleen (Jo) Gordon signed a conservation easement to protect 109 acres of their property forever, while still allowing them to enjoy a place that has been precious to them for more than fifty years.

More Nature on the Way for the Tusket Islands

An exciting addition to our coastal lands, Sheep Islands lie adjacent to the Tusket Islands Wilderness Area and adds 22 acres to the Nature Trust's network of protection within a globally significant conservation area. Thanks to Nature's Way Canada, this trio of islands provides critical habitat along the Atlantic Flyway, essential for bird population recovery and continued conservation.
