Backus Block – Devos Myke Property

The old growth Backus Woods is a spectacular gem of NCC’s Southern Norfolk Sand Plain Natural Area. The Southern Norfolk Sand Plain Natural Area is situated right in the heart of the Carolinian zone. Comprising less than 1% of Canada’s land mass, the Carolinian zone is home to 25% of Canada’s population, contains some of Canada’s most productive agricultural lands and provides habitat for nearly 25% of Canada’s endangered species.
