Saturday, August 6, 2022: Shaw Wilderness Park Clean Up

Help protect one of Halifax’s most beautiful parks!

Saturday, August 6,  10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Capacity: 20


With the support of our partners, Halifax Regional Municipality and Shaw Group Ltd, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has conserved 154 hectares of forest and jack pine barrens next to the Purcell’s Cove Backlands, at Colpitt Lake and Williams Lake. The property is home to more than 40 species of breeding birds and other wildlife, and just a short trip by car, bus or bike from downtown.

Spend the day helping to preserve a beautiful park located right in Halifax! The Shaw Wilderness Park is frequented by many visitors every year and so it is important to keep it clean for all to enjoy.  We will spend the day cleaning up debris from around the park. Please note: this will be a physically demanding task, and a moderate to high fitness level is required.

Pre-registration for this event is required and more information can be found here.

Questions? Please email Emma Willoughby, conservation engagement intern, at or call 867-444-1424.

What to bring: Water, snacks, waterproof shoes, rain gear (just in case!), layers of clothing, bug spray, sunscreen, hat. NCC will provide all required tools and equipment, as a picnic lunch.

Trail difficulty: moderate, trail is maintained and pretty flat. This event will require physical labour and so participants must have a moderate to high fitness level.
