At the Head of St Mary's Bay is a pristine marshland , with an old Acadian dyke standing guard for centuries between the saltwaters of St Mary's Bay and the freshwater brooks and streams and the old cow-pasture-pathways which meander through this coastal grasslands. Birders, naturalists, and hikers all come to experience this land meeting sea, teeming with nature's great diversity of life. The traditional growing of hay,, or pasturing cows for the summer, still takes place on the "uplands" of the marsh. A great deal of the marsh is owned by Ducks Unlimited and that is what borders this aprox.60 acres of field and woodland. The brook which flows through the entire marsh is a canoe trip to anticipate. There are two famous woodlands in Nova Scotia, one is Kedji National Park and the other is this Sunken Forest which is at the beginning of this marshland and which similar remains of an original woods, can also be seen by the tree trunk sizes on the property. The property was purchased as a project to protect the most endangered geography in the world- the marshland. It is the nursery of life, on land and in the sea. The owners had hoped to find a nature-lover who was looking for such a traditional farmland for sustainable living and who would have had a great interest in keeping an eye on the marshland and wildlife as just part of their own lifestyle. When Ducks Unlimited obtained a good part of the marsh the need for someone to keep an eye on the marshland was taken care of and so it is for sale. There was an original house house on this homestead, as you can see by the rock wall which borders Hwy #1. There is a wealth of wild life and woodlands, fields which need reclaiming, fruit trees and berries, and a great view. It is just up the road from the Old Marsh Road and that meanders through the marshland with small bridges and allows access to experiencing this paradise up close. A public transit bus goes by the property regularly. (id:45785)
