Outline of Hawke Hill Ecological Reserve Management Plan
The area known as Hawke Hill Ecological Reserve on the Avalon Peninsula is established as an ecological reserve to preserve the best example of arctic/alpine vegetation east of the Long Range Mountains and a representative portion of the Alpine Heath Ecoregion for scientific study and educational purposes. To accomplish this, there will be no removal of plants or other material from the site except under specific permit, and there will be no development within the reserve. Scientific research at the site will be encouraged, and educational use of the reserve will be permitted where it does not conflict with the general objectives of preservation and scientific research.
