Natural Areas Conservation Program

Program Summary

The Natural Areas Conservation Program (NACP) is a partnership to accelerate the rate of private land conservation and protect important natural habitat in communities across southern Canada.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) administers the program, securing ecologically significant lands —including forests, grasslands and wetlands — with the participation of Ducks Unlimited Canada and other land trusts. Habitat protected under the NACP connects or enhances corridors to existing protected areas such as national parks, national wildlife areas and migratory bird sanctuaries.
