The Noremac Nature Preserve is within traditional Wolastoqiyik territory. The preserve was donated in 2019 by Marion Cameron to keep this land protected in perpetuity.

Ecology

Old growth Acadian forest is the key feature of the Noremac Nature Preserve. This forest type provides diverse wildlife. Wildlife such as flying squirrels, lynx, and barred owls depend on old growth forest habitat to survive.

The forest is dominated by mature to over-mature softwood stands (white cedar, red spruce, balsam fir, white pine), and a few hardwood stands (red maple and white birch). Limestone is also a significant ecological feature on the property.

Access and Activities

The preserve can be accessed by turning left onto Yellow Gate Rd off of Acamac Backland Rd, then turning right onto Upper Cross Rd. Property will be on the right approximately halfway down road after passing Free Ln.

*The property is undeveloped and there are a variety of hazards and risks associated with accessing this preserve. While this nature preserve is open for public access, visitors must assume responsibility for their own actions and safety and are to use the land at their own risk.
