Quintessential Rare Plant Site Protected, Forever!

August 14th, 2015
A hotspot for Canadian endangered species conservation has been protected, forever, in Nova Scotia. The Nature Trust announced today the successful acquisition of the 300 acre Wilsons Lake Conservation Lands, in Yarmouth County.


Southwestern Nova Scotia is home to a unique group of wetland plants known as Atlantic Coastal Plain Flora. Eleven of these plant species are on Canada’s endangered species list. They exist nowhere else in Canada. One property in particular has been a top conservation priority for decades, since the first discovery of these unique plants in Nova Scotia.
