About the Nature Trust of New Brunswick

Established in 1987, the Nature Trust is a grassroots, charitable land conservation organization that is responsible for conserving over 9,000 acres (3,600 hectares) of private land in more than 60 beautiful and diverse nature preserves throughout the province.

Our mission is to conserve areas in New Brunswick that are ecologically significant; to establish nature preserves that remain protected forever; to steward the preserves through a network of volunteers and supporters; and to engage with the public on the importance of land conservation, New Brunswick’s natural heritage, biodiversity, and species at risk.

New Brunswick is a bountiful province, with stunning landscapes and varied ecosystems of forest, coastline, and waterways. The organization protects unique natural areas in New Brunswick: spectacular spaces of pristine, scenic beauty, including many that shelter rare, endangered species of flora and fauna. It is the Nature Trust’s mandate to steward these lands while maintaining healthy ecosystems, biodiversity and preserving native species.

We partner with individuals, landowners, community groups, non-profit organizations, Indigenous groups, businesses, and government departments at all levels to protect New Brunswick’s natural spaces. We establish nature preserves through land donations, land purchases, conservation easement agreements, other legal interests in land, and manage them in perpetuity.

We acquire conservation lands by working with our communities, members and volunteers to ensure that the natural heritage of New Brunswick is protected forever. Anyone can become a member of the Nature Trust by making a donation in person or online. In 2019, the Nature Trust established Our Conserve Y(our) NB: Protect the Places You Love campaign with a goal of raising $10 million to increase the amount of land we protect to 15,000 acres by 2030. This campaign is focused on protecting the essential habitats important to combating climate change, increasing wildlife habitat, and protecting the natural heritage of our province.

Throughout our everyday work we encourage responsible stewardship and protection of our conserved lands. This means New Brunswickers have access to natural spaces and recreation opportunities, the ability to get away and reconnect with the outdoors, and the opportunity to teach future generations about the importance of nature.
