Create a lasting natural legacy through the Nova Scotia Nature Trust.

By naming the Nature Trust as a beneficiary of your Will, you will help preserve vital habitat and protect endangered species so they will be here for future generations to enjoy. Your legacy is more than a gift; it expresses what matters most to you.

A legacy gift to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust, whether large or small, preserves a treasure trove of wind-swept beaches, dramatic coastal headlands, rocky shores, old forests, freshwater lakes, wetlands, and rivers. The places you’ll protect will provide critical ecological benefits like flood prevention and carbon sequestration, saving treasured places for people to hike, fish, canoe, and enjoy nature. And when nature thrives, we all thrive.

Preserving value

A gift to the Nature Trust can provide a significant tax reduction for your estate, helping to preserve its value all the while protecting the natural beauty of Nova Scotia.


When you add the Nature Trust to your Will, your assets remain available to you during your lifetime. A bequest is also flexible; it can be for a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate and can be changed at any time.
