Schedule B

Outline of Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve Management Plan

The area known as Mistaken Point is established as an ecological reserve to preserve the unique fossils found there. To accomplish this there will be no removal of material from the site, and there will be no development which destroys the fossils, or prevents access to them. Scientific research at the site will be encouraged, and educational use will be permitted where it does not conflict with the general objectives of preservation and scientific research. Hunting, fishing, berry picking and herding of cattle will be permitted.

The managing agency for the reserve is Parks and Natural Areas Division of the Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation.
