Appalachian Corridor and Conservation Espace Nature Shefford (CENS) are pleased to announce the protection of nearly 41 hectares (ha) in the Bromont-Shefford corridor, a high priority wildlife corridor. This newly protected natural area brings to more than 13,500 ha the network protected by Appalachian Corridor and its partners in the Appalachian region of Southern Quebec. “The acquisition of this property by CENS, a long-time partner and affiliate of Appalachian Corridor, will contribute to maintain ecosystem connectivity by protecting forest and wetland habitats located in the heart of the wildlife corridor, allowing the movement of species between the Brome and Shefford Mountains on both sides of Highway 10” explained Mélanie Lelièvre, Executive Director of Appalachian Corridor.
