The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) invites people across the Maritimes to join us at the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show, being held at the Moncton Coliseum from March 31 to April 2.
For the third straight year, NCC invites nature and outdoor enthusiasts and novices alike to visit their exhibit booth, meet staff and learn more about NCC's conservation projects located in all corners of New Brunswick.
This year at the Sportsmen’s Show, NCC is launching new outdoor volunteer events for people of all ages — from children to seniors.
The one-day, hands-on events will be held throughout the summer at NCC’s various nature reserves across New Brunswick.
Drop by the NCC booth Friday, Saturday or Sunday to find out how to enroll, and enter the draw to win a gift basket.
"NCC is pleased to be attending the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show for the third consecutive year,” said Thomas Tremblay, communications officer for the Nature Conservancy of Canada. “We look forward to strengthening relationships with the community as well as letting people know how they can get involved in the great work the Nature Conservancy of Canada does across the province and the country.”
NCC staff will also be on hand to help nature enthusiasts plan a visit or hiking trip to one of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s conservation areas this summer.
With over 160 conservation sites and more than 20,000 acres of protected land in New Brunswick, NCC properties are open to the public for foot access for recreational activities such as hiking, walking, birding, photography.
