Located within the Gaspereau River Watershed on the South Mountain and featuring spectacular views of the Gaspereau Valley, the Minas Basin and Cape Blomidon, the 605 acre Wolfville Watershed Nature Preserve is home to many exceptional natural features.
Old-growth forests like those found in the Preserve are now exceptionally rare in Nova Scotia. The preserve protects one of the last properties of this ecological quality and size in the Annapolis Valley.
The property was the original water supply for the Town of Wolfville and it still serves as a back-up water supply source. The Nova Scotia Nature Trust, in partnership with the local community and the Town of Wolfville, permanently protected this natural treasure for future generations to enjoy.
