By providing educational and advocacy opportunities for the general public, Nature NB is building a more informed community that knows how to take care of our natural world.

By providing everyone with opportunities to learn about nature, celebrate it, and take action to protect it, we’re able to put our mission into motion and connect as many people as possible with nature.
