The donation of 366 hectares of forest land by the three sons of the late Dr. George and Phyllis Cook is the largest conservation project undertaken by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) in Nova Scotia this year. It's also the largest project the agency has partnered in over the past five years in Canada. The forest, dominated by sugar maples, beech and birch, along with scattered growths of pine, ash and hemlock, is made up of "some of the highest quality Acadian forest" his team has documented in the region, Craig Smith, a NCC program director said. As with other conservation sites, the Dr. George Cook Nature Reserve will open for such public uses as hiking, birdwatching and picnicking. And while hiking trails and signage may be developed in the future, the site will not be developed in any significant way. "But we will go through a property management planning process," Smith said. "So we know people will be able to access the site and be able to do some of those basic recreation activities."
