There are many ways to get involved and help support our work in Nova Scotia.

Volunteers

Volunteers play a vital part in furthering the mandate 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 ecological integrity. They participate actively in the management of natural areas, monitor species on our properties, report issues such as illegal wood harvesting or vandalism and keep a watchful eye on our nature preserves.

Conservation Volunteers program

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's Conservation Volunteers program engages people in the protection of Canada's biodiversity while providing 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.

The Conservation Volunteers program offers volunteers opportunities to join staff on projects designed to contribute to the long-term stewardship of ecologically significant properties owned and managed by NCC and its partners, right across Canada. For more information, click here to see events hosted in the Atlantic Region on the Conservation Volunteers website.

Stewardship committees

Volunteers may be recruited to form local stewardship committees. These committees are paramount in the maintenance of our nature preserves and provide valuable input regarding future management decisions.

Observation

Volunteers assist in monitoring 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.

Protection

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.
