Protecting our natural and cultural heritage

Beaubassin and Fort Lawrence National Historic Sites

Archaeology has revealed many cultural treasures: First Nations objects, evidence of Beaubassin homes and Fort Lawrence buildings, the traces of gardens, pathways, roads and fences, and the impacts from burning the village, plowing the fields, and occupying the land.

On site conservation efforts include monitoring and conserving habitat for several species at risk like the short eared owl, the barn swallow and the bobolink. The little brown bat and the northern long-eared bat are also endangered species that nest in the surroundings.
