Resource management planning for Hawksnest State Park

The Department of Conservation and Recreation held a public meeting on December 5 to announce their proposed their Resource Management Plan (RMP). The plan encompasses Nickerson State lands on Cape Cod, including Hawksnest State Park.

At the meeting they indicated they were accepting public feedback expressing concerns, issues or ideas. They gave January 10 as the deadline for comments, but said they would accept comments that came later.

The RMP serves as a guide for potential future actions by the DCR. The guidelines are often used as criteria for grants from other public or private agencies. These guidelines may help organizations like the Harwich Conservation Trust to find grant money to help buy property for conservation purposes. The RMP doesn’t include any funding for recommendations.

Please share your thoughts with the DCR
