Save the dates! The 2023 Celebration of Nature is coming!

The Celebration of Nature is Nature Nova Scotia’s AGM and annual gathering for naturalists in Nova Scotia. Due to ongoing complications of the COVID-19 pandemic and limited volunteer capacity, we are again hosting a distanced Celebration in 2023, without our usual presentation series but with the traditional guided hikes, taking place across the province. You can register for as many or as few field trips as you like, and they’re all free!
Field trips take place Friday evening, all day Saturday, and all of Sunday afternoon. The NatureNS AGM will take place virtually on Sunday May 28th from 9am-11am. 
Looking for the virtual AGM? Register here!
Please note:
  • Field trip registration opens on April 1st and closes May 26th*. Many trips are likely to fill up early, so don’t wait too long! You can register for the AGM any time.
  • The day-long trip to the *Cliffs of Fundy Geopark includes a catered lunch at an extra fee of ~$15. Registration for this trip closes May 15th at 7pm.
  • Field trips that are designed with families and youth in mind are labelled “kid-friendly” in the registration window, but most trips are suitable for older youth anyway. If you have any questions feel free to reach out.
  • We encourage all participants to follow social distancing best practices and encourage the use of masks for indoor or close settings. Let’s keep each other safe!
