New Brunswick

Most places under NCC's care welcome visitors. Please check site-specific pages on this website for access information and any special restrictions.

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.

Browse our interactive map of nature reserves located throughout New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada. Our nature reserves are managed for the primary purpose of nature conservation, but visitors are welcome to explore many of these sites. Most of our nature reserves are open to pedestrian access on existing paths and during daylight hours. However, many of these lands do not have paths, are undeveloped, and may have hazards present, so care should be taken when visiting.

If you wish to get involved and learn more about becoming a volunteer to help look after these areas, please email us at: Atlantic.Volunteers@natureconservancy.ca.
