Help Make Change
Part of Hike NS’s role is to be the voice of hikers in Nova Scotia. This means advocating for change in policy that will positively affect what hikers care about, such as:
How You Can Help
- Quality, safe and maintained hiking-only trails
- Urban wilderness hiking and long distance hiking opportunities
- A complete and well-resourced implementation and evaluation of the NS Trails Strategy
- Protection of natural areas and wilderness
Support the campaign to save Owl's Head Provincial Park Reserve from being removed from Nova Scotia’s Parks and Protected Areas Plan. Learn more here
. Hike NS sent a letter to the NS Department of Environment
on this and also signed onto a letter of 23 groups
opposed to the delisting of Owl's Head.
