The Expedition for the Earth is an adventure trek to raise funds and awareness to help preserve special wild places in Nova Scotia, while challenging participants to explore fascinating protected areas around the world.

Funds raised by Expedition for the Earth team go directly to preserving critical habitats and outstanding natural areas in Nova Scotia for generations to come.

Each Expedition for the Earth participant covers their own travel costs and accommodations and commits to raising a target of $2,500 for conservation in Nova Scotia. The treks are expertly guided by Berg Adventures International.

To date, the Nature Trust has held three Expeditions to Patagonia (2013), Iceland (2016), and Ecuador (2018). The treks have raised over $100,000 for conservation.
