Damaxyaa Heritage Site/Conservancy is located near the northern end of North Moresby Island, immediately south and west of the community of Sandspit. It is part of an archipelago-wide system of protected areas that includes Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, several provincial parks and ecological reserves, and ten other heritage site/conservancies. In total half of the land base of Haida Gwaii is now in protected status. It includes a portion of the Haans and Agnes creeks’ watersheds. The heritage site/conservancy also contains most sections of the popular Louise Dover Trail that winds it way through old growth cedar and hemlock forests.
