THE BACKLANDS WILDERNESS PROJECT: Come to the AGM to learn about the urban wilderness park. We will have a shortened meeting followed by an opportunity to socialize and discuss what we need to do to see a major portion of the watershed become a protected urban wilderness.
Please join the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) for an update on the proposed Urban Wilderness Park at Williams Lake. The NCC is hosting an open house and we’d love to meet you.
In September HRM announced that the tentative agreement for the Urban Wilderness Park on the Purcell’s Cove Backlands would include a parking lot and main entrance. Since then some questions have been raised about the concept and possible scale of parking adjacent to a wilderness area. The NCC in partnership with urban parking specialists UrbanMobility has arrived at a solution that will provide for those who visit by car while meeting the concerns of conservationists.
