Cape Split Provincial Park Reserve Preliminary Management Plan

Situated in a dramatic coastal setting near Scots Bay, Kings County, the 428 hectare Cape Split provincial park reserve is the most ecologically-intact portion of the North Mountain and one of the most important undisturbed areas on the Bay of Fundy. The property includes several rare or threatened plant species, old forest, prehistoric sites, rare and semi-precious minerals and one of the most prominent coastal hiking trails in Nova Scotia.

To ensure the intrinsic values of Cape Split provincial park reserve are protected for the benefit of present and future generations, the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources has prepared a preliminary management plan that defines a vision and philosophy that will guide future management decisions affecting the park.

To encourage public participation, the Department is hosting two open house events. The first is being held on Thursday May 28 at the Scots Bay Community Hall, Highway 358, Scots Bay. The second open house is on Thursday June 4 at Clark Commons, University Avenue, Acadia University, Wolfville. Both open houses will run from 4 pm to 8 pm. Written comments may be left at the open houses or mailed to:

Brian Kinsman, Senior Parks Planner,
Parks and Recreation Division,
Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources,
RR 1, Belmont, Colchester County,
Nova Scotia, B0M 1C0,

Comments would be appreciated on or before June 30, 2009.
