100 Wild Islands
Celebration - July 26
From the blazing colour of an autumn hardwood forest to the stark beauty of a granite barren, Nova Scotia has a rich and diverse natural heritage, and with less than 30% of the province's land publicly owned, private landowners have a vital role to play in protecting these places. The Nova Scotia Nature Trust is a non-governmental charitable, land conservation organization whose mandate is to forever protect these irreplaceable natural treasures on private land.
