New Brunswick

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 20,000 acres (8,000 hectares) of this province's most ecologically significant habitats.

Plan a visit to our most popular nature reserves: the Johnson’s Mills Shorebird Interpretive Centre near Sackville, Musquash Estuary Nature Reserve near Saint John and  Grand Manan Migratory Bird Sanctuary. We also welcome anyone interested in hands-on conservation to get involved in NCC’s Conservation Volunteers program.
