To accomplish its objectives of protecting environmentally significant private land in the Bras d’Or watershed and educating Cape Breton communities and visitors to the area about the unique ecological and cultural heritage of the Bras d’Or Lakes, the Bras d’Or Preservation Nature Trust is currently focused on the following programs:
