Events

Events and volunteer activities are regularly taking place across the country because connecting with you, our community of supporters and those we have yet to meet, is an important part of conservation.

We continue to follow local health guidelines and in some cases add our own safety measures, because your well-being and that of our staff is deeply important to us.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) hosts many events across Canada. Take a look at what's taking place online or in your home province and spend some time with the NCC community.
