Give your most meaningful gift this year...and help Save the Wild Blue!

Protecting the Blue Mountain Wilderness Connector

There’s a beautiful wilderness paradise in Halifax called the Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes. It’s an incredible landscape of pristine forests, sparkling lakes and rocky barrens. A treasured spot to paddle, hike, fish and swim. To watch the birds. Or simply relax and enjoy the wild. All just 20 minutes from downtown.

Much of the land, some of the last, large undisturbed wilderness in the city, is protected. But 575 acres at its heart, is not. This critical gap in the wilderness is at risk of development.

The Nature Trust has a time-limited opportunity to save this land. Protecting this Blue Mountain Wilderness Connector will link together 5000 acres of irreplaceable urban wildlands, preserve an essential wildlife corridor and ensure the future of the Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes. With your generous support, we can Save the Wild Blue.
