Nature Canada’s NatureBus tour is heading to the NatureCOP in Montreal! This December, officials from 195 countries and the European Union will gather to discuss global progress on nature protection and come up with a plan to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030.

Our artist collective, Harm to Harmony, has partnered with Nature Canada to host a NatureBus stop in Fredericton on Dec. 4 at our office, Conserver House, located at 180 St. John St. Join us between 1-4 p.m. for some inspiring activities led by our artist collective and to write your letter to Canadian and world leaders.

Thirty percent of all proceeds go to the Conservation Council

So impressed by the efficacy and impact of art to inspire climate action, CCNB now independently supports this creative community.  Under the guidance of Juliana Bedoya and musician/writer/artist activist Laura Barron, artists have continued to express, through art, their ideas and feelings about climate change.

Their work is intended to inspire changes in behaviours in New Brunswick, and to offer a space for reflection on ways we might repair our relationship with nature, partly by experiencing its healing power reflected in the artwork.

Sign On For A Fully-Electric School Bus Fleet In New Brunswick

We’re calling on the New Brunswick government to follow the example of neighbouring Prince Edward Island and Quebec by putting in place a strong mandate and clear targets to achieve a 100 per cent electric school bus fleet over the next few years.

Send Your #StopSpraying Letter

Use our letter-writing tool to tell your MLA, the provincial government, and all party leaders to ban the spraying of our forest. Our pre-written letter will get you started, but we encourage you to add your comments on spraying and large-scale clearcutting and how it has affected you.

Lack Of Fairness, Trust, Participation Kills Renewable Energy Projects, Not NIMBYism

If developers, governments, and utilities want to build renewable energy projects, they must first build a process that is fair, that citizens trust and in which they can participate and influence outcomes, particularly around siting.

That’s the topline conclusion of the Conservation Council’s year-long research into why renewable energy projects fail from public opposition despite the majority of Canadians being supportive of more wind and solar developments.

featured project

Spraying in New Brunswick

Forestry companies spray clearcut areas with herbicides to kill hardwoods and vegetation that compete with the spruce, fir and pine they grow in plantations.

The Conservation Council has long advocated that the province stop the old-fashioned, citizen-funded practice of spraying the forest. Quebec banned the spraying of its public forest more than 15 years ago. Glyphosate, the main active ingredient in most herbicides used in Crown forest operations in New Brunswick, was listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s cancer research agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2015.
