Nature Trust Protects Freshwater Wilderness on the Herbert River

March 20th, 2015
Another key piece of ecologically rich river frontage has been protected by the Nova Scotia Nature Trust, bringing a vast freshwater wilderness sanctuary in Hants County one step closer to reality.


The 120 hectare Devils Jaw Conservation Lands encompass a rich complex of wetlands and forests, including over four kilometers of pristine shoreline. Several endangered species, such as Canada Warblers, Rusty Blackbirds and Wood Turtles find refuge in the undisturbed freshwater and forest habitats of the area. The property takes its name from the dramatic waterfalls, rapids and gorges along the Herbert River, aptly known as the Devils Jaw.
