Landowner Stewardship Guide For Species at Risk in Nova Scotia

This landowner stewardship guide is about living with species at risk, specifically the Blanding’s Turtle, Eastern Ribbonsnake, and 11 plant species that are part of a group called Atlantic Coastal Plain Flora. These species are at risk of disappearing from Nova Scotia and they need your help. Landowners have the unique opportunity to participate in species at risk stewardship right in their own backyards.


  • Provide ways to protect and preserve our wetlands and water resources.
  • Suggest actions that people can take to help species at risk and the habitats they depend on.
  • Help to maintain a healthy environment for you and your family and those who use the land after you
