Sandy Cove Ecological Reserve protects a species of plant found nowhere else in the world. Long's Braya (Braya longii) is a small plant that grows only on a small stretch of barrens near the community of Sandy Cove. It is one of the rarest plants in the world. Please do not visit the Reserve when soil conditions are wet (following snow melt or a rainfall) as this can damage critical Braya habitat.
