The saga surrounding Mount Foster has been going on for almost a decade. Initially, the project focused on the development of nearly 70 lots. The project now focuses on protecting 75% of the territory in perpetuity, i.e. 217 hectares. In addition, the conservation project will provide public access to the Tour des Scouts via a trail network. We are now reaching to the surrounding communities to help us fund this larger-than-life project.
Appalachian Corridor would have preferred that this area be left intact with no real estate development, but this was not possible and we cannot go back. We can only try to maximize the conservation of natural environments in this area for the future of Mount Foster.
In the current context, the conservation gains achieved in the agreement are considerable. The most sensitive ecosystems and the rarest species are protected almost entirely. In addition, land acquisition costs make the completion of the conservation project possible.
