Dolan Woodlands Nature Preserve Grand Opening

September 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

The Nature Trust of New Brunswick is pleased to announce the conservation of over 16 hectares (41 acres) of extensive mixed forest and wetland habitat, which includes part of the Carding Mill Brook tributary of the Miramichi River, in Miramichi.

Located in the neighbourhood of Nelson, the property has been named the Dolan Woodlands Nature Preserve after the Dolan family who generously donated the land to the Nature Trust for its permanent protection in 2018. The property borders the popular Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club and protects land where some of its trails are located.

The nature preserve protects an extensive network of wetlands, including forested wetlands, which provide important habitat for many species of plants, trees, and wildlife.

To celebrate the announcement of this newest addition to the network of Nature Trust protected areas in the Miramichi region, a grand opening celebration will take place at the nature preserve on Saturday, September 7th, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

All members of the public are welcome to attend. Participants are asked to meet Nature Trust staff at the Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club (131 Nelson St. Miramichi, New Brunswick, E1N 6A8). The event will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a grand opening speech and will be followed by an interpretive walk, guided by a Nature Trust staff member, at 2:00 p.m. to showcase the important ecological features of the preserve.

Interested individuals are asked to visit www.naturetrust.nb.ca/upcoming-events to register in advance. Any questions about the event or the preserve can be directed to Nature Trust Stewardship Manager, Bethany Young, at bethany.young@ntnb.org or by calling (506) 457-2398.
