Celebrating a Historic Year in Conservation
26 Jun 2019
What a year – 2019 has been the most exciting and successful year for conversation achievements in the Nature Trust's 25 year history! Thanks to the faithful support of our incredible donors, volunteers, landowners and conservation partners, we were able to leverage over $5 million to protect 3,200 acres of high-priority conservation lands across the province in less than six months through our historic Lasting Landscapes campaign. Find out more by reading our 2018/2019 Gratitude Report and watch a short video highlighting the awe-inspiring beauty of these new conservation lands.
A glimpse into the secret life of seabirds – Bon Portage Island stewardship excursion
20 Jun 2019
Certain seabirds can lead very mysterious lives – there are many species that spend the majority of time out at sea, only coming to land to nest. When they do come to land, it is typically on remote islands that are largely inaccessible to people. Over June 7-9, on a special weekend-long excursion to Bon Portage Island for our Connecting with Nature series of events, we were able to offer volunteers an opportunity to get a glimpse into the secret life of one species of seabird in particular—Leach’s Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma leucorhoa).
