Received from the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC):
“Please join us and NCC for an update on efforts to create the Urban Wilderness Park at Williams Lake.
“The Nature Conservancy of Canada is hosting an open house and would love to meet with everyone who has followed and supported efforts to protect this important wilderness area.
“Monday May 7, 2018
5:00-7:00 pm – Saraguay House
The Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron
360 Purcells Cove Rd, Halifax, NS
“Thanks to a special partnership between NCC, The Shaw Group and Halifax Regional Municipality, we have the opportunity to conserve 379 acres of unique habitat in the heart of the city. The vision for this Urban Wilderness Park is to conserve the land while allowing for recreation, so thousands of Nova Scotians and visitors can get outside and connect with nature, close to home.
“Your support is needed to establish the Urban Wilderness Park. You can help make it happen. Find out more about the park and support the Nature Conservancy of Canada as it raises a share of the project costs.
“For more information about the project, please join us at the open house or visit: www.natureconservancy.ca/wildparkhrm.
