Protection of MacKenzie Cove

Lawn Party celebrating protection of MacKenzie Cove.*
During our stay this summer The Nova Scotia Nature Trust celebrated the protection of MacKenzie Cove here in rural Cape Breton by hosting a Lawn Party at our house in Marble Mountain.  Dan has donated his property to the Nature Trust with a life estate for the children through their lifetime.  Consequently,  this beautiful coastal property will be protected in perpetuity.
