The McCormack Lake area in Nova Scotia is a special spot. At first glance, this 910-hectare (2248 acre) site doesn’t really look all that special. The old softwood stands bordering wetlands with hardwoods in the adjacent uplands are common ecological communities amongst our holdings in that province, yet moose (Alces alces) are drawn to this area for feeding and breeding year after year.  While moose are fairly common in the northeast, there are very low numbers of these big beasts in mainland Nova Scotia.  While the reasons for this scarcity are still being studied, we’re making sure we manage this area for these majestic creatures.
