Site description
This proposed Reserve consists of Dry Scrub Woodland and is located near the coast adjacent to the Campden Park River. It shares its western borders with the compound of the Forestry Department’s Headquarters. Thus the site is often used for staff field training and public education. The majority of the remaining boundary lies adjacent to human settlement and boundary encroachment has been a serious challenge to the Forestry Department. Dominant tree species include Bursera simaruba, Swietenia mahogani and Tabebuia pallida .

Key biodiversity
Bird species are generally confined to those associated with the relatively dry tropical Forest Woodland. Seven (7) RRS but no Globally-threatened species are found.

Non-bird biodiversity: Relevant species include herpetofauna A. griseus, A. trinitatus and M. bruesi.
