Lucien Dansereau was the father of Pierre Dansereau (1911-2011) a scientist and humanist who developed ecological thinking in Quebec. He left his mark in a multitude of fields such as biogeography, urban and human ecology and land use planning. In the 1940s, Pierre Dansereau worked with the Jesuit Brother Marie-Victorin, director of the Montreal Botanical Garden.
The Jesuits bought the property from the Dansereau family in 1944. A clause in the deed of sale stipulates that part of the forest must be preserved in its entirety 'for the scientific work of Pierre Dansereau, biogeographer'. The Ministry of Forests has declared this maple grove, which has not undergone any human intervention, an Exceptional Forest Ecosystem (EFE). The protected area has since been tripled by the MRC des Pays-d'en-Haut. Thanks to the preservation of this forest and the absence of shoreline residents, with the exception of the Jesuit villa, Lake Dansereau is one of the healthiest lakes in Wentworth-North.
