The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Boreal Wildlands Project near Hearst is continuing its positive momentum by reaching its fundraising target in just five months. “We have completed the conservation of this amazing 350,000-acre, 145,000 hectare project, which is actually the largest private land conservation project in-Canada’s history,” program director Kristyn Ferguson told The Daily Press. “As we have now closed on the property, we are also thrilled to announce that we have raised all the funds needed to complete the project.
