The Bras d’Or Preservation Nature Trust partners with private landowners, organizations and communities to conserve and protect ecologically important habitat through land donation, purchase, and conservation easements. It was the first “designated conservation organization” under the then newly enacted Nova Scotia Conservation Easements Act in 1993. We also sponsor the Bras d’Or Lakes and Watershed Interpretive Centre as part of our mandate to increase public awareness and appreciation for the Bras d’Or Lakes.
The Bras d’Or Preservation Nature Trust is a registered charity with the Canadian Revenue Agency, able to issue tax deductible receipts for donations and gifts. The organization is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors.
