Parks and protected areas are very important components in the quest to preserve New Brunswick's natural legacy. They come in a variety of sizes and offer varying degrees of protection, and each one is important. At present, 4.5% of New Brunswick's landbase is protected under these designations.
There are different categories of parks and protected areas, and for each there are different rules. Here is a brief overview of these differences:
There are also, scattered throughout the province, various municipal parks and areas under conservation easements held by different agencies.
CPAWS NB is very interested in these parks and would like to hear comments from people who have been to these parks or has information about them that they would like to share. As well, if you have photos that you would like to share with us, please send them too, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
