Price Conservation Area
A perfect setting for family picnics on a hot summer day. Situated along a beautiful stretch of the Skootamatta River, the area is rich in flora and fauna. There is a white pine plantation, but the area is predominantly mixed forest with wet and marshy land in the low lying areas. A large, scenic concrete dam restricts the flow of the river which then enters a gorge . Along the edge of the gorge are beautiful stands of mixed forest, making a trip to this area worthwhile for the scenery alone.
Located in Actinolite near the junction of Hwy #7, and Hwy #37.
