Organization: Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust’s (MMLT) and Friends of the Carp Hills
Timeline for Completion: Ongoing
At 15.7 acres it is Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust’s (MMLT) smallest land acquisition to date, but the Whaleback Woodland Reserve is hugely important to the protection of the Carp Hills. Strategically located adjacent to over 200 acres of conservation forest woodlands owned by the City of Ottawa, it increases the area of protected interior forest and wetlands in this important designated candidate Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI). MMLT hopes that the landowner’s donation will encourage other landowners who appreciate the natural landscape in the Carp Hills to consider long term protection options for their ecologically sensitive lands.
The Friends of the Carp Hills will be assisting MMLT by providing stewardship and monitoring of the Reserve.
