Singing Woods Nature Reserve is located near the intersection of Cates Hill road and Berry Road, a short distance from Snug Cove. It was established when the landowner/developer of the Cates Hill area worked together to protect critical habitat within the proposed development.
Singing Woods protects the Dry Maritime Coastal Western Hemlock habitat, and a large wetland-stream corridor that is important for a number of birds and mammals.
In the spring of 2011, the Conservancy obtained funding from the Islands Trust Fund to plant new trees, protect existing trees, and to remove invasive species. Over 100 new trees were planted in April and May.
Additional restoration work is planned for late 2011/early 2012.
