Medicine Beach Nature Sanctuary

PICA manages Medicine Beach on behalf of Islands Trust Fund, with covenants on the Sanctuary held by Nature Conservancy of Canada and Habitat Acquisition Trust.

Fall 2014, PICA added two doggy-pots to the Medicine Beach Nature Sanctuary, one near the parking lot, and the other on the trail from Aldridge Road. Please use them.

We have placed a sign in the parking area to discourage fires, camping, log removal and “doggy-do”. There are also new signs marking the trails. Help us protect this conservation covenant by staying on the marked trails.
