Musquodoboit River Nature Reserve

Featuring 25 kilometres of river frontage and 175 acres (70 hectares) of wetlands, the Musquodoboit River area supports mature hemlock and softwood forest on steep, mossy hillsides, as well as intact floodplains, featuring an uncommon combination of black cherry and red oak trees. It’s one of the most untouched sections of the Musquodoboit River, which has, in many places, been altered by mining, forestry and agriculture.
