09 Jun A new nature reserve is created at lac Brome thanks to Mrs. Terry Wiazowski
Lac Brome, QC (June 9, 2022) – Appalachian Corridor would like to thank Terry Wiazowski for the creation of the new White Eagle Nature Reserve in Brome Lake. Named after the Polish origins of its owner, the new protected area is 35 hectares in size and has been owned by the family for over 70 years.
“I have been here 51 years since my marriage and have always loved this land. Seeing so many farms around Granby and Cowansville disappearing, and condos going up, strengthened my desire to protect my little green corner. I contacted Appalachian Corridor and they sent biologists to inspect the land who found a variety of species worth protecting. Appalachian Corridor then helped me with my application to the government. I am extremely pleased that the land will be a Natural Reserve in perpetuity.”
Her gesture allows her to remain the property’s owner, all the while ensuring its protection in perpetuity.
Appalachian Corridor would also like to thank the following funders, without whom the project would not have been possible: Environment and Climate Change Canada, Fondation de la faune du Québec, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the Echo Foundation.
