When the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) raises the rest of the funds needed to purchase the land for the Halifax Wilderness Park on William’s Lake, Halifax City will own the land. We need your financial contributions to support the campaign… then we can address the important issues of water levels and the dam.
Nature conservation will play a crucial role in our efforts to mitigate climate change by helping store carbon and allowing people and wildlife to adapt to changing conditions. Donate to the Backlands wilderness park at https://KeepHalifaxWild.ca
Our Friends in and about Williams Lake have been working hard to reassemble the Committee addressing Williams Lake water levels (aka Dam Committee) and has issued the following announcement on the Pine Bluff Facebook group’s website. We were invited to include it on our WLCC website which we are happy to do, with thanks to the Pine Bluff folks for their continued work.
Good Robot, a microbrewery at 2736 Robie Street, is holding a fundraising event in support of the project on February 18, noon until midnight. They will donate $1 from every beer sold to the Park and a good time for all participants is guaranteed.
The use of road salt on driveways and front door paths is bad for the lake… consider alternatives. Some prefer sand (not sharp-edged grit that can damage floors) and shoveling can reduce the need for even that.
