Federal Land Parcel Goes to Environment and Climate Change Canada

We are excited to announce that the federal parcel of land adjacent to Owls Head Provincial Park has officially been transferred to Environment and Climate Change Canada … a monumental step in the Save Owls Head Park campaign.

This would not have been possible without the intense opposition to the sale of public parkland or the committed advocacy of our conservation partners. We would especially like to thank CPAWS NS, who have been working tirelessly to save this ecologically significant property and its 45-year history of promised protections. The importance of your work at the provincial and federal levels cannot be overstated.

We are also grateful to the government of Canada and the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson (Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada) for recognizing the importance of this representative coastal ecosystem. Thank you for your commitment to honour the best and highest use of Owls Head Provincial Park.
