Code of Conduct

  • Respect Mother Nature: tread lightly, and learn what plants and animals are threatened or endangered.
  • Respect landowner property rights: ask permission to cross private land, and do not trespass.
  • Blueberry fields are a valuable crop and are on private land; restrict picking to U-Pick operations.
  • Camp only in designated areas.
  • Keep dogs on a leash when visiting beaches where migrating shorebirds are present.
  • Respect Provincial and municipal laws and regulations governing fossil, mineral and artifact collecting. Fossils are protected in Nova Scotia and may be collected only under permit by the Nova Scotia Museum.
  • Notify park and museum staff of any discoveries.
  • Plan ahead and check tide times, leaving at least two hours to return to your starting point before high tide.
  • Protect yourself from:
    • The sun
    • Rough terrain and slippery rocks
    • Falling rocks (by keeping a safe distance from cliffs and avoiding overhanging rocks)
    • Wild animals (by knowing how to act if encountering coyotes or bears)
  • ‘Leave no trace’ of your visit.

What is a Geopark?

A Geopark is a designation that attracts tourists wishing to explore the connections between geology, local communities, culture, and nature. Geoparks are designed to promote tourism and celebrate a region’s uniqueness, and do not prohibit any land use.
