Our conservation achievements would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our passionate and enthusiastic volunteers.

Volunteers help with everything, including caring for our conservation lands, fundraising, producing our newsletter, and serving on our many active committees—all are important activities in our efforts to preserve Nova Scotia’s wild places.

Do you love to be outdoors? Are you someone who loves to make new connections?

For many volunteer opportunities with the Nature Trust, no previous training or experience is necessary. All you need is a desire to help by donating your time and skills.

Whatever your passion, we have a place for you. Get involved today!
