Duncans Cove Nature Reserve

Duncans Cove Nature ReserveDuncans Cove Nature Reserve is located approximately 17 km south of Halifax in the Pennant Granite Barrens natural landscape.

Duncans Cove Nature Reserve is an excellent example of a representative coastal headland, barren, and bog complex, and is particularly valued because of its proximity to the Halifax metropolitan area and its popularity as a natural area. It is also the only known mainland Nova Scotia locality supporting the provincially rare Arctic Blueberry (Vaccinium uliginosum).
