Harvey Moore (1916-1960) is recognized as one of PEI’s first naturalists. He purchased this 46.5 hectare natural area in 1949 with a vision to create a safe staging area for migrating waterfowl and to provide safe habitat for resident wildlife. He achieved this by building a barrier dam in the river which runs through the property creating the two large ponds that remain today. The ponds provide favourable nesting habitat for waterfowl including Canada geese, mallard, northern pintail and black duck. The presence of North American beaver is quite evident throughout the woodland, along with many other PEI mammals such as the red fox, Eastern coyote and snowshoe hare. Songbirds, herons, grouse, owls and other raptors can often be seen and heard along the trails offering many opportunities to test your photography skills. Recreational fishing is a favourite pastime and avid botanists will find a delightful representation of many of the Island’s native plants, shrubs, and tree species. Visitors are welcome to the explore the site using the low to moderate difficulty trails. The 3.0km of looped trail can be split into two shorter trails. The trail system winds around the ponds and wetland, through mixed forest, spruce thickets and larch stands, and over the Sturgeon River.
