Thank You for Helping Make Land Conservation History!
UPDATE: April 5, 2019
Thanks to everyone who supported the historic Lasting Landscapes campaign, we have raised just over the minimum amount required to leverage the additional funds from the Government and other funders to protect the 17 conservation sites identified!
Donations to the campaign were matched at a rate of 4:1 by the Government and other funders and this leveraging generated a total of $4.25 million for land conservation in Nova Scotia.
In the first part of the campaign, donations of $750k leveraged an additional $3 million (for a total of $3.75 m) and helped save 15 conservation sites. Just before the funding deadline of March 31st, an additional $400k was offered to the Nature Trust to protect 2 more sites, if we could raise $100k from our supporters, and Nature Trust supporters rose to the challenge raising the necessary $100k by April 5th.
Thank you to our supporters, donors and friends who have helped save over 3,200 acres of land, over 17 conservation sites, within just a few months!

While we can no longer offer the 4:1 match opportunity, we are asking for your help to protect all of our conservation lands forever. The Nature Trust commits to stewarding or taking care of all our lands in perpetuity, so please support this effort by donating to the stewardship of our conservation lands!
