Stand Up for Our Parks & Protected Areas

Please keep in mind that the list below is by no means exhaustive. Whether you prefer writing, painting, photography, songwriting, or something entirely different, we appreciate you sharing your time and talents with us.

We will continue to update this page to reflect new initiatives.

1. Sign and share the online petition

While the online can’t be submitted to the Legislature, it’s a great tool to show how many people care about protecting our parks and protected areas. It’s time to save Owls Head Provincial Park!

Sign Now!

2. Sign the formal petition

Residents of Nova Scotia are asked to please sign both the formal and online petitions.

The formal petition calls on the government of Nova Scotia to formally protect Owls Head Provincial Park and all of the remaining properties awaiting designation.

If you believe that our network of protected areas is worthy of protection and that citizens should have a voice in this decision-making process, we hope you’ll help us deliver that message to the Nova Scotia Legislature.

3. Artists for Owls Head

We are looking for artists, photographers, songwriters, poets, and other creative folks to capture the rugged beauty of Owls Head Provincial Park. To learn more, please visit our dedicated page, here.

4. Talk to your MLA

Information here

The government’s secret delisting & offer to sell Owls Head Provincial Park puts parks awaiting designation in jeopardy across the whole province of Nova Scotia.

Approximately 125 properties from Our Parks and Protected Areas Plan are still awaiting legal protection, meaning that they, too, could be secretly delisted and sold.

Would you like to know which parks are in jeopardy in your community? Go to the government’s interactive map and search for the park. If it comes up as “NS Lands Proposed or Pending Protection,” it’s not legally protected yet—and that needs to change.
