Conservation Planning – St. Croix River Watershed
In the southwest corner of the province, along the NB-Maine border, you can find the St. Croix River – this watershed is unique because it provides an opportunity for the Nature Trust to collaborate with conservation organizations in both countries.
Since 2012, the Nature Trust and the Woodie Wheaton Land Trust in Maine have had a cross-border working agreement to help facilitate future conservation projects. The Nature Trust has also partnered with the Nature Conservancy of Canada to develop a Habitat Conservation Strategy for the Lower Bay of Fundy region, which includes the St. Croix River. This information will be used to help identify future conservation priorities for our organization, as well as create more partnerships in the area and strengthen and unify our efforts.
This project is in the early stages, so please check back for updates.
