Protected Areas


MacAulays Hill

MacAulays Hill This small site near Baddeck consists of three parcels with spectacular karst features, including large gypsum sinkholes, talus outcrops, and caves. Old mixed and hardwood forests cover the site, which has good potential to host hibernating bats. At least six species of rare plants associated with gypsum occur at this site.

Big Harbour Road, which passes through the area, is excluded from the boundary and will remain open for vehicle use.
