Schedule B

Outline of Avalon Wilderness Reserve Management Plan

The Avalon Wilderness Reserve is established for the purpose of protecting one of North America 's most southerly unspoiled barren lands, providing sanctuary for a variety of plant and wildlife species normally found much further north. It is of particular value in protecting the Avalon caribou herd. It is an important wilderness resource for the use of people close to the major population centre of the province.

Management policies aimed at achieving this include: no new development and restrictions on access, in particular motorized access; no habitat modification and allowing natural ecological succession to continue. Scientific study in the area will be encouraged and educational use will be permitted. Hunting, trapping and fishing will be allowed to continue. Permits for travel to the area will be required and the area will be posted with signs.

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