The view we all love - exciting development!

Kingsburg Pond & Village

The Jill and Hazen Trueman family have made a generous donation of property on Kingsburg Pond, abutting the triangle of land that the KCC purchased in 2008.

These two pieces ensure that the glorious first-view of Kingsburg will be always available. With the addition of the Trueman donation, we now have about 430 feet of pond frontage with land that includes both wetlands and some beautiful hardwoods.

The KCC is delighted to have purchased a heavily wooded parcel of 8.9 acres stretching from shore-to-shore on Rose Head .

A Forest Management Plan has been drawn up by Picea Forestry Consultants reflecting the KCC's intent to preserve the wooded area in a conservation and rejuvenation program.

Gaff Point trail improvement

In June 2009 work to improve the Gaff Point Trail included back-packing in woodchips to fill-in the "corduroy paths" constructed with fallen trees.

A volunteer day was organized and funded by the Nature Conservancy of Canada. Assistance was provided by local volunteers, the KCC, the Nova Scotia Nature Trust and Katimavik students. See our '09 newsletter and scroll to pages 9, 10 and 11 for further updates and details about trail improvement and stewardship of Gaff Point.
