Gaff Point Trailblazers

Help to preserve the beauty of one of NCC’s Nature Destinations!

Saturday, July 9
9 a.m.–4 p.m. 

Capacity: 25 

Located on Nova Scotia's popular South Shore, Gaff Point is a headland of impressive cliffs, conifer forest, heaths and grasslands. Gaff Point is stewarded in partnership with the Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy (KCC), a local land trust. The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and KCC monitor and manage a public trail, which is an NCC Nature Destination

At this day-long event, we will be working to maintain and improve the 3.5  kilometre trail that runs through the Gaff Point Nature Destination site. This will help protect the natural features of the coastal trail and promote user enjoyment and safety. We will be restoring areas of the trails that are a little “worse for wear.” Come with your energy and elbow grease!  

Pre-registration for this event is required.

For more information, please email Emma at


Questions? Please email Emma Willoughby, conservation engagement intern, NCC, at or call 867-444-1424. 

What to bring: Water, snacks, close-toed walking shoes, work gloves, rain gear (just in case), layers of clothing, bug spray, sunscreen and a hat. NCC will provide all the required tools and equipment, as well as snacks and refreshments. 

Trail difficulty: Moderate. Trail maintenance will require some strenuous physical labour but there will be tasks for people with a wide variety of physical abilities. People of all fitness levels are encouraged to participate in this event!
