Steepbank Brook Nature Reserve

Steepbank Brook Nature Reserve is a forested site next to Steepbank Brook, and south of Oxford.

Low lying, poorly drained conifer forest and a mixedwood ridge provide habitat for eastern white cedar, a listed species-at-risk in Nova Scotia. The brook is a tributary of River Philip.

A power line corridor which passes through the site is not within the nature reserve.
