Protected Areas


Long Lake

Long Lake Long Lake Nature Reserve, in eastern Lunenburg County, protects Long Lake and its surrounding woodlands. The nature reserve is heavily forested, primarily with stands of mature red spruce, along with mature white pine, red maple and yellow birch.

Designated in 2009, the reserve was expanded in 2015 to add additional conifer-dominated hills, which are not well represented in the provincial protected areas network. It now includes Lost Lake and Long Lake Stillwaters. More than 2.5 km of its boundary abuts South Panuke Wilderness Area.

The reserve can be accessed by portage from Connaught Lake or by walking in from a logging road near its eastern boundary.
