Nova Scotia Nature Trust 20th Annual Dinner & Auction


Join the Nature Trust for our Annual Dinner and Auction at the Cunard Centre in Halifax. Help us celebrate the year’s conservation successes and network with like-minded friends while raising critical funds for the Nature Trust’s continued work saving the most unique and outstanding places across Nova Scotia.

This is our 20th Annual Dinner and Auction, and to celebrate we invite you to head out Into the Wild with us. Our special guest speaker Brian Keating will take us on an incredible escape into the wild spaces that he has explored all over the world, from the Canadian Arctic to the African savannahs. Together with his wife, Mr. Keating has explored nearly 50 countries on all seven continents in the last quarter century, and he brings an infectious enthusiasm for the natural world to his work that is truly inspiring. We know that this will be evening to remember!
