Join Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) staff as they lead citizens out into the future Halifax Wilderness Park to take part in the City Nature Challenge. This Challenge engages people and cities across the world to see who can make the most observations, who can find the most species and who can engage the most people. Anyone can take part, no matter your level (or lack) of expertise.
The Williams Lake Backlands may play a crucial role in an exciting wildlife program – the re-introduction of the eastern cougar to central Nova Scotia. Spearheaded by the Cougar Foundation, in consultation with the Maritime Wildlife Federation, the idea for the program came together quickly. Said Richard Painter of the Cougar Federation, “we were looking for suitable habitat, and the federation saw the need for a native predator in the environment”.

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.
