We are now heading into a very important time that may determine the future of a significant portion of the Purcells Cove Road Backlands. Halifax staff is currently writing a report that is expected to be delivered to Council in early September. They need to hear your support.
It is imperative Council and city staff know there is widespread support for and interest in the Urban Wilderness Park as proposed by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and the The Shaw Group.
The proposal outlines the creation of an Urban Wilderness Park owned and managed by the City of Halifax and Nature Conservancy of Canada in partnership. It would support a small, accessible ‘frontcountry’ experience (wheelchair and stroller friendly) and a more rugged ‘backcountry’ trail network for recreation, nature appreciation, education programs and many other activities.
We are counting on your continued support and encouragement, and the next four to six weeks will be critical.
Please get involved here. And encourage your entire network to do the same.
