Dalhousie Mountain

Dalhousie Mountain This small mixedwood forest is a refuge for at least six species of rare plants, including round-leaved hepatica, a rich woodland herb known to only a handful of locations in Nova Scotia. The site contains stands of rich sugar maple and yellow birch forest that support diverse and abundant spring wildflowers.

The northern boundary avoids a fire tower and access road, also used for off-highway vehicle riding. This site is partially surrounded by Dalhousie Mountain Wind Farm.
