Description & Services
Information WRWEO (pronounced “ree-oh”) is an organization of volunteers who have been carrying out action projects to protect and improve human and natural environments throughout the Woodens River watershed since 1995. 
This watershed includes all land, habitations and streams that drain into the Woodens River system. The headwaters lie in the region of the Hubley exit (exit 4) on Highway 103, twenty kilometers west of peninsular Halifax. From there, a set of 19 connected lakes flow southwest across the Chebucto Peninsula into the Woodens River and finally into St. Margaret’s Bay at Woodens Cove in Seabright, a distance of approximately 20 kilometers. The total area of the watershed is approximately 65 square kilometers. It includes large tracts of close-to-pristine wilderness, as well as recent and older settlements. 
The Bluff Wilderness Hiking Trail was built to allow the Woodens River community and the public generally to become aware of the extraordinary natural assets of this area, on the principle that awareness is the first step in protection. Completed in 2005, it has been rated as one of the 8 best urban escapes in Canada by Explore: Canada’s Outdoor Magazine.
