Who are we?
The Nature Trust of New Brunswick is a charitable land conservation organization that focuses on conserving and stewarding private land and engaging New Brunswickers about the importance of protecting our province’s unique natural heritage and biodiversity.
Since 1987, we conserved over 8,000 acres (3,200 hectares) of ecologically significant land in more than 62 beautiful and diverse nature preserves throughout the province.
New Brunswick is a bountiful province, with stunning landscapes and various ecosystems of forest, coastline, and waterways. We protect unique natural areas in New Brunswick, spectacular spaces of pristine, scenic beauty, some which shelter rare, endangered species of flora and fauna. It is the Nature Trust’s mandate to steward these lands while maintaining healthy ecosystems, biodiversity and preserving native species.
Our mission is to conserve areas in New Brunswick that are ecologically significant, establishing nature preserves that remain protected forever, to steward the nature preserves through a network of volunteers and supporters, and to engage with the public on the importance of land conservation, New Brunswick’s natural heritage, biodiversity, and species at risk.
We honour and protect New Brunswick’s remarkable biodiversity and natural heritage through conserving an expanding network of nature preserves.
