Docherty’s Brook

Docherty’s Brook Docherty’s Brook Nature Reserve, near Pugwash, protects a remnant patch of eastern white cedar forest.

White cedar is a listed species-at-risk in Nova Scotia. The nature reserve also includes a shrub fen and mixed conifer forest.

The designation of this site as nature reserve complements private land conservation of adjacent cedar forest lands recently acquired and protected by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC).
