Protected Areas


Eagles Nest Nature Reserve

Eagles NestThis area encompasses the fens and forest slopes along Piney Stream in the interior of former Bowater Mersey lands, north of St. Margarets Bay. Old red spruce, yellow birch and sugar maple forests form a refuge and wildlife corridor in the midst of a landscape extensively used for forest harvesting.

Scenic stillwaters and old forest slopes along Piney Stream offer wildlife viewing opportunities. This is part of a traditional Mi’kmaq canoe route.

Final boundaries have been straightened and also adjusted to an adjacent road for survey efficiency and to simplify management.
