Be a Nature Maker!

Nature Makers are our monthly donors, bringing strength and resiliency to land conservation by providing a steady source of funds we can depend on. By making a regular committed monthly gift, you can have TWICE the impact: you’ll give us the ability to strategically plan for the future AND take swift action when important opportunities arise.

This is a strategic way for you to give, making your support even more impactful.

Our Nature Makers have helped save more than 30,000 acres of incredible places so far, ensuring that nature will thrive on more than 190 properties. As we protect more lands across Nova Scotia, your monthly donation will allow us to expand our protection and care of conservation lands through additional property monitoring, habitat restoration activities, and community engagement. And knowing that we have a reliable source of funding enables us to take action quickly when urgent issues arise.


Jason Roth and Cheryl Steadman-Roth have been dedicated supporters of the Nature Trust for 20 years, and they have a vision to inspire others to support conservation. In early 2023, they made a very generous offer to match any new or upgraded monthly donation with an additional $500 for the Nature Trust! Although this campaign is now concluded, it was a wonderful way to inspire donations and attract new monthly donors, and we are deeply thankful for their generosity.
