Voglers Cove Conservation Lands (Donation)

Voglers Cove Conservation Lands. 21 acres in Indian Bay, Lunenburg Co.
Donated by Dr. Mary Hunter

Significance

Undisturbed coastline, coastal habitats.

Details

Visionary conservationist Mary Hunter had the incredible foresight and generosity to have Voglers Cove protected, at a time when coastal land in Nova Scotia is being subdivided and developed like never before.

This unique site features undisturbed coastline and a diversity of associated coastal habitats. The coastal area includes four small coves and three distinct isthmuses that create a disproportionately long area of coastline relative to the overall area of the property. Three saltwater marshes and one pond are present. The central and eastern portion of the land support a predominantly conifer forest.
