Rose Hill Nature Reserve

Biodiversity at its best

Rose Hill Nature Reserve is a beautiful and unique 358 acre property of forested landscape in Addington Highlands.

It is found in a remote area with four small ponds, wetlands and several creeks. It is at a high elevation for eastern Ontario and is dominated by several long, steep ridges with rock outcrops and glacial erratics common on the domed hills and slopes. The property is blanketed by a diverse suite of 22 ecological communities ranging from high rock barrens to low marshes and ponds, but most of it is covered by upland deciduous (sugar maple, sugar maple-oak-hickory) and coniferous (hemlock, white spruce, white pine, balsam fir) forest.
