To identify, protect, maintain and restore Nova Scotia's native biodiversity and ecological integrity, including representative, rare, outstanding, and unique or otherwise ecologically significant natural features and phenomena by:
working with private landowners
raising awareness of the need for and benefits of private land conservation
making use of and encouraging the development of effective tools and incentives for private land conservation
cooperating with other conservation partners to achieve mutually desirable goals
preserving and stewarding priority conservation lands in perpetuity through acquisitions and conservation easements
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.
