The Nova Scotia government is asking for Nova Scotians’ input on the 2017-18 budget. Find more information in the news release and on the Budget page. The deadline to provide feedback is January 16, 2017.
Consider making a submission yourself about the value of hiking and trails. Here are some things Hike NS cares about:
- The preservation, protection and development of walking, hiking and snowshoeing opportunities
- The sound management and expansion of urban and wilderness recreational trail infrastructure
- The protection of wild lands where hiking takes place or could take place
- Strong funding for the forthcoming provincial Trails Strategy
Trails are key drivers of a healthy population, providing free venues for physical activity, as well as a contributor to economic development.
