Dutch Creek Hoodoos (Fairmont)

This 62 acre (25 ha.) property is made up of iconic hoodoo geological formations, which provide important nesting habitat for the at-risk white-throated swift, alongside other cliff-dwelling birds and bats. Only 6 km from the town of Fairmont, the property has become a popular Nature Destination among locals and tourists alike. The Dutch Creek Hoodoos was generously donated to the Nature Conservancy of Canada in 2005 by Jim and Gaetane Ashworth.
