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

Volunteers help with many things, including caring for our conservation lands, fundraising, writing, and serving on our 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? Get involved today!

*Please note that volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
