LaHave Coastal focuses its efforts on

  • Helping the public recognize the impacts of centuries of human activity on forest and coastal ecosystems,
  • Helping landowners understand how to restore biodiversity in Acadian forests and coastal ecosystems, and
  • Protecting habitats through purchasing and receiving donations of land and conservation easements.
