Small Mountain, Big Symbol: 30 Years of Citizen Efforts to Preserve the Natural Heritage of the Pinnacle Mountain (Danielle Dansereau)
QAHN Heritage Talks Online:
This presentation describes the tribulations of a group of citizens working to preserve a precious natural milieu in Frelighsburg (Eastern Townships) for future generations. The integrity of the Pinnacle Mountain, an important landmark overlooking the landscape of many municipalities in Brome-Missisquoi and beyond (including Northern Vermont) was the subject of a famous battle in 1990s that went as far as the Supreme Court of Canada. All these years later, in light of the climate crisis, these efforts take on even more significance.

Danielle Dansereau is a freelance writer, award winning screenwriter, environmentalist and activist. She was a founding member of the Pinnacle Mountain Land Trust in 1991, which was entirely run by volunteers. In 2022, she’s still involved in the organization as president. She has published sixteen titles in children’s literature, many articles, and the historical monograph Borders, Customs and Smuggling. She is currently working on a story of the whole Pinnacle Mountain affair.
