Massif des monts Sutton and surrounding region

Previous page Table of Contents Next page

You are now on the Massif des monts Sutton. This area includes the Réserve naturelle des Montagnes-Vertes [in French only], which is the largest private conservation area east of the Rockies. The land was acquired in recent years by the Nature Conservancy of Canada and is being developed by Appalachian Corridor.

You are also standing in the heart of the Appalachians. This 487-million-year-old mountain range stretches from Newfoundland in Canada to Alabama in the southern United States.

Many rare or at-risk species live here. You may get a chance to follow their tracks or maybe even spot the animals themselves.
