New Brunswick

The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC's) land conservation efforts in New Brunswick began in 1989, when we worked with partners to purchase land for a nature preserve named after the late George Stirrett — an eminent biologist who initiated efforts to protect Furbish’s lousewort, a rare perennial herb and shoreline plant limited to the Saint John River Valley, along northwest New Brunswick and northern Maine. Since then, NCC has worked diligently to secure more than 30 projects in all corners of the province, protecting 16,003 acres (6,476 hectares) of important habitat.
