Parks in Peril
In addition to Owls Head Provincial Park, there are approximately 125 provincial parks, nature reserves, and wilderness areas across Nova Scotia that still aren’t legally protected.
The secret delisting of a provincial park reserve set a troubling precedent for Nova Scotia’s parks and protected areas—now and for the future.
We’re hopeful that the government of Nova Scotia will restore the integrity of the provincial park network. We’re calling on them to legally protect Owls Head Provincial Park and the 125 other properties from Our Parks and Protected Areas Plan with an Order in Council.
UPDATE: After nearly two years of unwavering public opposition, the prospective developer withdrew from the Letter of Offer in November of 2021. To restore the protected areas network and re-establish public trust, we encourage the government to legally protect Owls Head Provincial Park (and the other 125 parks awaiting designation) as soon as possible.
