Conservation Lakefield – Working to preserve wetlands in Gore 

Wetlands are an oasis of natural beauty, and are critical in supporting biological diversity. This important natural resource is being rapidly destroyed across Quebec and around the globe. But in Gore, we are lucky to have an exceptional wetland right here! The wetland of the Rivière de l’Est is impressive in its size and scope, providing exceptional habitat for birds and wildlife, and also acting as a protective natural sponge to absorb flood waters and runoff. You can help Conservation Lakefield preserve and protect the wetlands in Gore. Become a member today!
