The Wilderness Committee focuses on wildland and forest conservation, and ecosystem-based forest management. We currently have two main areas of focus:
- Our Public Lands project works closely with government and other non-governmental organizations to preserve wilderness on crown land.
- Our Forestry Program works with woodlot owners, the forest industry and government to promote ecologically responsible forestry and a viable, rural-based forest economy.
We are urging all Nova Scotians with a love of nature to get involved in the final public consultation for new Parks and Protected Areas announced February 28th by the Nova Scotia government.
Public consultations, which will help shape the final plan, will begin in March and run until May 1. A series of meetings across the province are planned beginning March 7. Written and online comments are also encouraged through their website. An impressive online interactive map system has been set up which shows details for each park and habitat patch under consideration and provides online tools to register site-specific comments.
Show your support! get involved now and help save the last great wild places in our beautiful province - for present and for future generations.
