The Nature Conservancy of Canada’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 over 30 project areas in all corners of the province, protecting 13,500 acres (5,463 hectares) of important habitat.
