MRC to honour agricultural heritage with tourism initiative

The environmental group Ambioterra celebrated its 20th anniversary in fine style on August 12 at the Cabane à sucre l’Hermine in Havelock, with a full day of celebrations in the company of forty guests, all of whom were involved in some way with furthering the cause in the Haut-Saint-Laurent.

The group took stock of two decades of environmental protection in the region, including the conservation of aquatic environments, biodiversity, birds, and bats, as well as wetlands and forests. During a series of presentations, the group highlighted its achievements, including the creation of the Pépinière régionale du Suroit in 2020. The nursery produces trees native to the region, to help reduce deforestation and soil erosion while improving water quality, protecting biodiversity, and combatting climate change.

 

Silos such as these in Howick can be seen throughout the MRC du Haut Saint Laurent Soon several of them will be converted to giant canvases to display the work of local artists as part of a $13 million project in partnership with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs PHOTO MRC du Haut Saint Laurent

 

Salaberry-Suroit MP Claude DeBellefeuille joined Huntingdon MNA Carole Malette in marking this important milestone for the organization. Several members of the agricultural community, as well as committed citizens from the region, also took part in the day’s activities. The celebration was hosted by comedian and humorist Dahnaé Audet-Beaulieu.
