Conservation Campaigns and Projects
The Nature Trust carries out a number of campaigns, programs, and projects that reach all across Nova Scotia. This work is sponsored by individual donors, corporations, foundations, and government grants and carried out by Nature Trust staff and volunteers. In many instances we work with partner organizations for mutually desirable goals.
A leading example of the work we do is our Plants on the Edge program. Southwestern Nova Scotia supports the majority of Atlantic coastal plain flora in Canada. Threats to these unique plants include recreational land use and shoreline alteration. Through this program, the Nova Scotia Nature Trust carries out work to protect these rare and endangered plants by:
- training volunteer monitors
- contacting and informing landowners of important coastal properties
- engaging communities to act as stewards
- providing appropriate signage to identify sensitive areas
And Plants on the Edge is just one of our conservation projects. The menu to the right provides a list of all the campaigns and projects we are currently engaged in, as well as a link to some of the key campaigns and projects the Trust has undertaken in the past and has successfully completed.
