Outline of Watts Point Ecological Reserve Management Plan
The area known as Watts Point on the Great Northern Peninsula is established as an ecological reserve to preserve the unique flora of the calcareous barrens and a representative portion of the Strait of Belle Isle Ecoregion for scientific 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 on the reserve. 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. Recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, and hiking will be permitted.
