City of Magog and Municipality of Orford Township

Wildlife corridor project between Cherry River and Castle Brook

The Cherry River to Castle Brook wildlife corridor project, aiming to establish an ecological link between the Mount Orford forests and Lake Memphremagog, is a great example of collaboration. It was begun in 2012 as a collaboration with the city of Magog. To ensure the continuity of these important ecological links, in 2014 the municipality of Orford Township picked up the ball examine these wildlife corridors and assess the best strategy for their maintenance.

To ensure the success of the project, a lot of effort was put into raising funds from different partners. We would like to thank the following for their generous contributions to this project: The firm WSP Consultants, Environment Canada via its EcoAction program, the Fondation de la Faune du Québec through its Protect our wildlife habitats program, the City of Magog, the Municipality of Orford Township as well as the numerous private donors who hold the preservation of the Lake Memphremagog watershed and the quality of its water dear to their hearts.
