The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has been creating a natural legacy in Nova Scotia for 50 years. NCC's work in the province dates back to 1971, with 210 hectares conserved at Sight Point in Cape Breton’s Mabou Highlands. NCC has worked with individuals and communities to protect more than 17,000 hectares in projects across the province.

Together we are making a difference in all corners of picturesque Nova Scotia; from strategic land securement initiatives, to restoring and protecting habitat, to important stewardship and land management activities. From rural areas to Halifax County, we are diligently working to sustain the province's natural heritage for today and for our children and grandchildren.
