The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has received a generous donation of nine parcels of ecologically significant land in Escuminac, about 55 kilometres east of Miramichi, New Brunswick.
The sites, totalling 634 acres (256 hectares) are situated on both sides of Point Escuminac, with shorefront on both Miramichi Bay and the Northumberland Strait.
NCC would like to thank the Maxfield family, who made this gift. Individual donations were received from Margaret Maxfield (mother) and her children; Daniel Maxfield, David (Kathy Becker) Maxfield and Elaine (J.D.) Starling. The family had purchased the land in 1980 and used it as a summer place. However, they live in the United States and wanted to see the site conserved.
NCC wants to recognize the following organizations for their support in completing the project: the Government of Canada's Natural Areas Conservation Program, Enbridge Inc, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service through the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA), Friends of the Nature Conservancy of Canada and Rayworth & Roberts Surveys Ltd.
