Second to the size of the boreal forest is the Great Lakes–St. Lawrence forest region, which stretches from southeastern Manitoba to the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec. A mix of coniferous and deciduous trees, including white pine, sugar maple, yellow birch and eastern hemlock, can be found in this region. NCC is working to protect large, intact landscapes in the diverse forest region.
What is NCC doing to help protect this habitat?
NCC collaborated with TD Forests to protect the following properties over the years:
- The Mount Burnt property in Quebec, in 2011.
- The Cockburn Island property in Ontario and Green Point property in Quebec, in 2012.
- The Crane River Tract property in Ontario, Kenauk property, Mount Foster property and Malbaie River property in Quebec, in 2015.
- The Emma Young Forest property in Ontario, in 2016.
