Fitz-Randolph's Legacy Is Fighting To Protect Land

A celebration of the life of Mabel Fitz-Randolph is coming up this afternoon on the west side.     

The 100 year old woman recently passed away.

She spearhead the move to make the Musquash estuary a marine protected area and even spurred on other landowners by giving more than 700 acres of her own land to the cause.

Andrew Holland of the Nature Conservancy of Canada tells CHSJ News her efforts did not go unnoticed.

He says because of her work she was given an environmental lifetime achievment award from the Province which he says is a testament to her personal contribution to this area west of Saint John on the lower Bay of Fundy.

A funeral for Fitz-Randolph will be held at 1pm today at the Castle Funeral home on Lancaster Avenue.
