Since 1989, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has been working to conserve New Brunswick’s most significant natural areas. With its office 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 10,000 hectares of this province's most ecologically significant habitats.
Plan a visit to our most popular nature reserves:
- Bur Oak Forest at the Keyhole on Grand Lake
- Johnson’s Mills Shorebird Interpretive Centre near Sackville
- Musquash Estuary Nature Reserve near Saint John
- Grand Manan Migratory Bird Sanctuary
