The Boularderie Island Lighthouse Preservation Project is a committed group of individuals, whose primary
goal is the restoration of the picturesque lighthouse on the shores of Boularderie Island. Headed by
Boularderie resident Dr. Ron Stewart, whose valiant efforts have brought the restoration process to
a tangible level, the lighthouse project plans to one day restore this forgotten structure to its original beauty.
The BIRRCH Project, Boularderie Island Research Restoration Community Heritage Project, has also played a key role in
the restoration effort in Summer 2004. The BIRRCH participants, under funding from HRDC, have provided support in a
number of key areas including helping to organize a fund-raising concert to actual hands-on lighthouse restoration.
The success of this project will certainly be reflective of the strong community spirit exemplified by the residents of Boularderie Island.
