The ‘Why’ behind acquiring this land

Whenever the subject of acquiring land for public ownership comes up, the immediate question is ‘why is this important’? 

Simply put, securing urban wilderness lands in public ownership enables future use including programming for outdoor, recreational and educational purposes which are all critical to the healthy and balanced growth of a vibrant Halifax.

In addition and specific to this immediate opportunity, we have a window where a private landowner is partnering with the Nature Conservancy of Canada regarding a common vision and working with the City of Halifax to make this Urban Wilderness Park a reality.  There are no guarantees that this land will not be developed in the future should this opportunity be missed.

That is why this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
