The Tide is Turning

Save Owls Head is a dynamic and inspiring movement, where scientists, Mi’kmaw Land and Water Protectors, and everyday citizens have come together in an effort to protect our province and our planet. 

More and more, Owls Head Provincial Park symbolizes the inherent values we recognize and the world of possibilities we envision. 


A Letter from Halifax Trails

Greg Taylor is the creator of the popular website Halifax Trails. For more than a decade, the site has offered photos, maps, and detailed guides to help people embark on their outdoor adventures. Greg Taylor was recently featured in a CBC article. He’s been an unwavering supporter of the Save Owls Head movement and recently sent the following letter to Premier Houston.

As a local eco-tourism guide, I can speak to you from experience that our parks and nature areas are extremely valuable. I get hundreds of thousands of visitors to my website every year who are looking for authentic outdoor adventures. Nova Scotia’s natural beauty constantly goes viral on social media and people from around the globe contact me for more info. If we build it, they will come. Eco-tourism needs to be what leads NS into the future and can be kickstarted by redirecting current subsidies of dead and dying, polluting industries that keep us chained to economics from the past.


CPAWS-NS: Good News for Owls Head

K’JIPUKTUK/HALIFAX – The campaign to stop the sale of public lands at Owls Head Provincial Park has achieved a huge milestone.

CBC News is reporting that the company behind the proposal has officially withdrawn the letter of offer with the Nova Scotia government to acquire those public lands. See that article here

“This is a major victory for the grassroots campaign to stop this land sale,” says Chris Miller, Executive Director of CPAWS-NS. “Delisting parkland is a red line that cannot be crossed.”
