Do you commonly use Blue Mountain - Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area?

There is currently a Halifax survey ongoing about a new access point to the Blue Mountain - Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area. Our favourite BMBCL advocacy group has great information about this survey on their website. Check it out here!

To go directly to the survey, click here! There are a few additional questions about the park, so think about additional entry points and your usage as you go through!


Snowshoe walk through Belchers Marsh Park hosted by HWNTA!

Sunday, February 14 (1:30 PM)

There is finally enough snow for us to host a snowshoe walk through Belchers Marsh Park! Sunday's weather looks fine for snowshoeing, and the thick layer of snow on the trails will make you feel taller than you ever have! Registration for the event is required through Eventbrite, and you must provide your own snowshoes. Hike Nova Scotia has created a list of Halifax locations that lend, rent, or sell snowshoes

Hope to see you there!
