Local nature enthusiasts and stakeholders gathered in Clarendon on Friday night to celebrate the acquisition of 106 hectares of biologically diverse wetlands and forest.
The plot of land sits close to the Ottawa River just outside Portage du Fort and was purchased by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), a non-profit organization that protects swathes of ecologically significant land across Canada. The NCC is funded by private investment and federal funding through the Natural Areas Conservation Program.
