Blandford Nature Reserve (expansion)

This small forested site is an addition to Blandford Nature Reserve, on the Aspotogan Peninusla. It is separated from the existing nature reserve by lands acquired and protected by the Nature Conservancy of Canada. The addition provides additional habitat for rare lichens, including globally endangered boreal felt lichen.

Located near the summit of Aspotogan Mountain, the site offers stunning views of St. Margarets Bay and Mahone Bay.
