Extremely rare lichen spotted on Nature Trust protected land!
02 May 2021
Many rare and threatened species of plants and animals make their home on lands protected by the Nature Trust (that’s often a big part of the reason the land is protected in the first place!). But this winter, our Conservation Biologist made an amazing discovery: a lichen that has only been found at one other location in all of Canada!

The iconic gypsum cliffs, rising from the banks of the St. Croix River, are part of an important ecological system based on alkaline soils, karst topography and mature forests, where rare plants and a diversity of wildlife make their home.
