Newfoundland and Labrador
Most places under NCC's care welcome visitors. Please check site-specific pages on this website for access information and any special restrictions.
As the only land trust organization in Newfoundland and Labrador, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has helped protect over 5,800 hectares of some of the best wilderness in the province. NCC currently protects land in nine project areas across the island. These range from coastal sites that host the East Coast Trail on the Avalon Peninsula to the internationally renowned Grand Codroy Estuary, near Channel-Port aux Basques. In Labrador, NCC created the NL Nature Atlas, an inventory of Labrador’s natural environment to support others with their land use planning.
Browse our interactive map of nature reserves located throughout Newfoundland and Labrador 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.
