Nova Scotia Nature Trust | Nova Scotians Protecting Nova Scotia

About Us

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust was formed in 1994 by a group of Nova Scotians who foresaw the wisdom of conserving the province's increasingly threatened ecologically significant lands. We are an incorporated charitable organization and are designated as a conservation organization under the Conservation Easement Act of Nova Scotia.

The Nature Trust is operated by a skilled professional staff under the guidance of a volunteer Board of Directors. Our work could not be done without the dedicated support of many donors, volunteers, strong province-wide membership and cooperation from local landowners and land stewards. The Nature Trust is recognized throughout Nova Scotia as the province's pre-eminent conservation organization for privately owned lands.

Our Mission

To protect Nova Scotia’s outstanding natural legacy through land conservation.

Our Vision

We envision a future in which Nova Scotia’s native species, and unique habitats and natural landscapes are protected in perpetuity, and in which this natural legacy is appreciated and actively stewarded.
