Note: The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources has been renamed the Department of Lands & Forestry.
The Eastern Shore Seaside Park System Citizen’s Representative Committee is formed, following the Nova Scotia government’s announcement of plans to develop the Eastern Shore Seaside Park System.
May 1, 1975
Local community representatives unanimously approve the concept of an Eastern Shore Seaside Park System. The concept is the product of co-operative efforts by the Nova Scotia Department of Lands and Forests, the provincial government, public participation advisors, and elected citizen representatives.
The Minister of Lands and Forests declares that his department wants to actively encourage public participation in the planning of the proposed provincial park system. The Committee is comprised of 21 locally elected members representing 17 communities from Musquodoboit Harbour to Sheet Harbour. Soon after its formation, the Committee decides on its own objectives.
The Eastern Shore Seaside Park System Brochure is launched by the Parks and Recreation Division of the Nova Scotia Department of Lands and Forests, in cooperation with the Citizens Representatives Committee for the Eastern Shore Seaside Park System.Continue reading “A Brief History of Owls Head Provincial Park”
