About our Fund…

The Nova Scotia Nature Trust was formed in 1994 by a group of Nova Scotians passionate about conserving the province’s threatened ecological lands. Such lands range from coastal barrens and salt water marshes to rocky shores and expansive sand dunes, from hardwood forests and rugged highlands to rich and fertile river valleys. For years, residents and visitors of Nova Scotia have been attracted to this special combination of natural areas. The Nova Scotia Nature Trust works with private landowners and other partners to ensure a variety of landscapes and unique habitats are maintained for future generations.
