Mason's Island

The Mahone Islands Conservation Association (MICA) is very pleased to announce that they have, in partnership with the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg, agreed to purchase the northern end of Masons Island. The Municipality will hold title to the property. The closing is scheduled for January 15, 2008.

This property, which is a favourite spot for boaters, complements and is adjacent to an existing property owned by the Municipality. It will be protected and available for public use under an agreement between MICA and the Municipality.

MICA certainly applauds this action by the Municipality. The addition of this property complements the Mahone Bay islands of Andrews, Backman and Covey that have previously been acquired by the Province in partnership with MICA.
