Prince Edward Island

Most places under NCC’s care are open to the public. Please respect public health guidelines when visiting them, and click here for site-specific updates.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has been working on Prince Edward Island since 1978. Since that time, we have helped protect over 2,600 hectares of some of the most ecologically significant parts of the Island. PEI is Canada’s most densely populated province, and its remaining areas of intact dunes, salt marsh and Acadian forest are precious. NCC is proud to have helped our partners create 23 protected areas in the province. We also own and care for 10 other nature reserves on PEI. NCC’s nature reserves conserve some of the wildest landscapes on the island and are open for all to enjoy.
