Sobey Family Protects Land on St. Mary's River: Nature Trust Conservation Legacy Grows

August 15th, 2017
At a special public celebration in Sherbrooke on Saturday, David and Faye Sobey entrusted their 30 acre property on the St. Mary’s River to the care of the Nova Scotia Nature Trust.


The property provides critical habitat for several endangered species but is also steeped in memories for the Sobey family who have been visiting this part of the river for over 80 years.

The property builds on our long-time conservation work on the St. Mary’s river, one of Nova Scotia’s most ecologically rich and important rivers. The new property brings our conservation network to nine protected areas encompassing 800 acres of important forests and wetlands on this river.

The Sobey property at Mitchells Pool, just north of Sherbrook Village, includes 30 acres beautiful floodplain forest, a rare ecosystem in Nova Scotia.
