DUMOINE, NOIRE AND COULONGE WATERSHEDS

DUMOINE, NOIRE AND COULONGE WATERSHEDS

Southwestern Quebec offers some of the last remaining opportunities to protect large, intact, landscapes. The Dumoine, Noire and Coulonge watersheds are among the last wild and intact watersheds anywhere in southern Canada. Our vision for western Quebec is bold and inspiring - an interconnected network of protected areas centered around the Dumoine, Noire and Coulonge watersheds that fully protect the richness of the landscape, that provide connections between the forests of the Ottawa Valley and the Boreal forest to the north and that provide meaningful jobs and investment to local communities based on ecotourism and sustainable development.
