KCC - Our history: The story of Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy is one of dedication, optimism and luck, of valued partnerships and
generous donors, and of an enduring appreciation for the natural beauty and worth of our land.
Stewarding lands in the Greater Kingsburg Peninsula and neighbouring areas.
Securing strategic properties for conservation and public access, through donations, purchases, and conservation easements.
Achieving our mission through communication, education and negotiation, working with other community organizations, land
trust organizations and individuals and encouraging sound land use and coastal zone management
Encouraging and supporting responsible conservation practices at both the Municipal and Provincial levels.
The Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy, in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, is committed to preserving
headlands, beaches, and wetlands of the Kingsburg Peninsula and neighbouring areas, and to safeguarding
traditional access to our shorelines.
Founded in 1995 as a charitable, non-governmental, community land trust,
the KCC depends on private donations and solely on volunteer efforts. Over the years we have established a solid record for
bringing land under our stewardship and protection, and for providing trails and other coastal access.
We are one of the few organizations in Nova Scotia eligible to accept ecological gifts and issue receipts for
tax benefits to those who either donate land or agree to place conservation easements on
land meeting federal criteria.
The KCC currently owns and/or stewards wetlands on Kingsburg and Lily Ponds, coastal properties on Kingsburg Beach and
Sand Dollar Beach, a wooded lot on Rose Head, and lands in the Shoubac. We share ownership of the 124 acre Gaff Point
with the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Nova Scotia Nature Trust, and, as of 2013, in partnership with Nova
Scotia's Department of Natural Resources, West Ironbound Island!
To conserve and protect shoreline, wetlands, beaches, freshwater habitats, fields and forests, and to ensure that access
to these places, both on Kingsburg peninsula and in neighbouring areas, remains available to the public forever.
