Birch Cove Rangers

By now, hopefully you have heard about the ongoing struggle to protect the Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes wilderness area. This idea of being a ranger of an as yet non existent park, was the creation of local artist Jennifer MacLatchy. Back in 2013 she began the blog “Birch Cove Ranger” which is a great educational and entertaining exploration of the area. I first became aware of her work as I visited one of my favourite spots in Halifax, the Susies Lake lookoff, or “flagpole hill” as it’s otherwise known.
