Barneys River Nature Reserve

Barneys River is now an official nature reserve, chosen due to its abundant old growth forest and river, creating an ideal habitat for the endangered mainland moose.

Barneys River has become an official nature reserve.

The nature reserve title comes after an additional $20 million in funding from the province was allocated to assist in the protection of Nova Scotia’s wilderness and water.
