Details

A significant piece of Cape Bretonís natural legacy, Yellow Head in Aspy Bay has been preserved forever through a donation to the Nature Trust.

The owners of the property, Walter and Elizabeth Kauzmann, purchased it to prevent its development or destruction. Upon learning about the Nature Trust and finding that our mission and land stewardship approaches matched their own intentions for the property, they decided to donate the land so that it could be protected and stewarded in perpetuity as a nature reserve.

The 40 acre headland is spectacularly scenic. It includes a beautiful and rugged headland, with a barrier beach, a pond and woodlands. The protection of this site is particularly significant, since the coastlines of Nova Scotia are very threatened by development.
