A.M. "Sandy" Cameron Conservation Lands (Donation)

A.M. 95 acres in Glenelg, Guysborough Co.
Donated by A.M. "Sandy" and Shirley Cameron, and family

Significance

Old-growth forest stands, rare floodplain forest along the St. Mary's River, habitat for species-at-risk.

Details

The donation of these two properties was the first success of the Nature Trust's St. Mary's River Conservation Legacy Campaign.

The properties contain important riparian habitats for the nationally threatened wood turtle, as well as remnants of some of Nova Scotia's last remaining intact Acadian floodplain forests. The property also helps to protect and maintain suitable habitat for Atlantic salmon.

The lands are named in honour of the late Sandy Cameron, who wanted to leave a lasting gift to the province of Nova Scotia, and to the river that was dear to his heart.
