Since 1989, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has been working to conserve New Brunswick’s most significant natural areas. Based in Fredericton, NCC has created more than 40 nature reserves — from the Acadian Peninsula in the north, to the island of Grand Manan in the south. To date, with the help of conservation-minded landowners and community supporters, we’ve protected more than 8,925 hectares (22,054 acres) of this province's most ecologically significant habitats.
Plan a visit to our most popular nature reserves:
- Johnson’s Mills Shorebird Interpretive Centre near Sackville
- Musquash Estuary Nature Reserve near Saint John
- Grand Manan Migratory Bird Sanctuary
