Show your support for Ecological Forestry and our Species At Risk

We are a federation of natural history societies and other environmental groups in Nova Scotia. As a registered charity, we operate to support networking, research, education, and advocacy initiatives for nature.

The Eastern Hemlock tree is a cornerstone species in the Wabanaki-Acadian forest but is threatened in Nova Scotia by the invasive Woolly Adelgid. Help us raise funds for treatments on private lands in Nova Scotia, and maintain our native biodiversity for the next generation.
In 2021, the province renewed its commitment to nature with a promise to protect a total of 20% of Nova Scotia's public lands by 2030. Help us Make Room for Nature by asking government to designate all pending protected areas in the current Parks and Protected Areas Plan.
NatureNS is a member of the Bird Friendly Halifax coalition, a group of bird-loving environmental organizations, researchers, and private citizens working to make HRM an officially recognized Bird Friendly City. Join us!

The State of Nature Report profiles the big nature issues Nova Scotia faced over 2022 and outlines things you can do to take action, now and into 2023. From Species At Risk to Ecological Forestry to Engaging the Next Generation of Nature Leaders. Check it out!
