The Nature Conservancy of Canada is a wonderful organization that protects many areas of natural diversity across the nation – including here in Newfoundland & Labrador (where it has already protected more than 12,000 acres of important bird/wildlife habitat). They are leading environmental stewards and preserve beautiful tracts of land/wetlands for both the plants & animals that depend on it and for the enjoyment of people for generations to come. Additionally, they hold fun and educational events — one of which is happening THIS weekend in our very own Codroy Valley. Check it out!!
