You’re invited to join the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and Hastings Prince Edward Land Trust (HPELT) for a special conservation event at the Hudgin-Rose property. Celebrate the official property announcement with light refreshments followed by a guided tour of the property. This event is a special thank you to those who contributed to protecting this special place forever; however, all are
welcome to join us to celebrate this conservation success.
NCC acquired the property, with the help of HPELT, in 2018. As part of the PrinceEdward County South Shore, it provides important staging and stopover habitat for a wide variety of migratory bird
species. It supports rare alvar and wetland habitats and is home to species-at-risk including Whip-poor-will, Monarch butterflies and the always smiling Blanding’s turtle. Originally settled by the Moses Hudgin family in 1865, the Hudgin-Rose property contains a historic log home.
