Lowland Cove showcases Cape Breton’s incredible coastal mountains and rugged wildness. This iconic 100 acre property is one of the last ‘inholdings’ of private land within the Polletts Cove – Aspy Fault Wilderness Area. Beyond protecting important coastal habitats and ensuring landscape connectivity for wildlife, saving this property removes a key hurdle to linking together the proposed Seawall Trail, an inspiring 48 kilometre trek along the incredible cliffs, barrens and highlands of Northern Cape Breton.

Major support for the protection of Lowland Cove was provided through the Canada Nature Fund, as well as the Nova Scotia Land Legacy Trust.

The final push needed to complete the purchase came from the incredible outpouring of public support to the Nature Trust’s campaign to save our iconic coastal legacy, encompassing not only Lowland Cove but also Middle Island and Sand Beach. All three of these new conservation lands represent important coastal landscapes around the province, and they all further the Nature Trust’s goal of saving Twice the Wild.
