North Harbor is American Friends’ second Nova Scotia conservation easement. The property is owned by Bostonian Merloyd Lawrence, who previously donated the Little Annapolis Lake easement, one of the first gifts received by American Friends of Canadian Conservation. It is part of a growing network of protected properties in Cape Breton. Bonnie Sutherland, the Executive Director of NSNT, said this easement is an important contribution to the Nature Trust’s efforts to protect ecologically significant coastal lands. This gift is especially valuable because it is in the Aspy Valley Natural Landscape, a small eco-region featuring rare Acadian forest.
