Cameron Lake Conservation Lands (Purchase)

Cameron Lake Conservation Lands. 62 acres in South Brookfield, Queens County
Purchased from annonymous

Significance

Undeveloped lakeshore, wetlands and species at risk habitat.

Details

Extensive cottage development within the Ponhook and Cameron Lake area has lead to a loss of significant habitat for shoreline-associated species. This property provides a safe haven for wildlife, including the globally rare Long's Bulrush, and the nationally Special Concern Redroot. More habitat is available for these species across the lake as well, on the John Forbes Thompson Conservation Lands.

The 3 tiny coves on this property are bookended by 2 hilltop aspen stands, full of wildflowers, mushrooms, and woodpeckers. Access to this site is only possible by boat.
