“Owls Head is characterized by repeating bedrock ridges that support a coastal barrens ecosystem. A globally rare heathland plant community occurs on the crests of the ridges and biodiverse bog wetlands predominate in the depressions between the ridges. This landscape pattern on the coast is only otherwise known from Blue Rocks, Lunenburg County, amidst residential developments with no conservation protection.”
“I personally find it very uplifting in its message and a poignant example of the power and foresight of community, commitment to protect the natural environment, and how these efforts benefit all, including the local economy” – Sue Corser
