There are many ways to get involved and help support our work in Nova Scotia.
Volunteers play an important role in the work of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) in Atlantic Canada. They bring a unique perspective, varied expertise and unsurpassed enthusiasm to protect the region’s natural areas. They assist with property management, monitor species, report issues such as illegal wood harvesting or vandalism and monitor our nature preserves.
Conservation Volunteers program
NCC's Conservation Volunteers program engages people in the protection of Canada's biodiversity. The program provides a meaningful, hands-on educational experience in ecologically significant natural areas. Our events are carefully designed to ensure your time is dedicated to critical conservation action.
Volunteers join staff on projects designed to contribute to the long-term stewardship of properties owned and managed by NCC and its partners.
To speak to the Conservation Volunteers coordinator in NCC's Atlantic Region, please contact Laurel Bernard at 506-450-6010.
Volunteers may be recruited to form local stewardship committees. These committees are paramount in the maintenance of our nature preserves. They also provide valuable input on future management decisions.
Volunteers help monitor plant and animal species in our nature preserves. Amateur and professional botanists and birders contribute important information on the status of rare and endangered species.
Volunteers may also participate in the physical maintenance of the property, help erect signs to delineate the property’s boundary lines, or clear walking trails.
