On May 24th, 2014, the MCT received its second donation of property, from George Wardman of Paget, Bermuda and North Hatley, Quebec. This donated property, located on the west side of lake Massawippi, consists of 420 pristine acres in the heart of the ridge. It climbs the slope to the summit of the ridge and then drops over the back of the mountain. The property is contiguous to the property donated by Louise Ransom, our first Hero. By giving the Trust his 50% ownership in the property, George has assured its protection in perpetuity.
George is the third generation of the Wardman family to spend his summers on lake Massawippi. His grandfather and father had acquired these lands for the express purpose of keeping them in their wild and natural state. George’s gift is made in honour of them.
Thank you, George, for your leadership role in conservation on this lake and for your wonderful generosity. And we thank your wife, Claudia and your children for their complete support of your vision for the future of this property and for the entire Massawippi Mountain.
