Our Vision

Conservation Council of New Brunswick believes the future of all life depends on bringing human activity in balance with ecological limits.

Our Mission

Conservation Council of New Brunswick is a non-profit organization that creates awareness of environmental problems and advances practical solutions through research, education and interventions.

Our History

The idea for a provincial environmental organization for New Brunswick was first proposed in January 1969 at the annual meeting of the New Brunswick Institute of Agrology by soil scientist Kenneth Langmaid. With a $50 grant from the institute, Ken joined with a group of other scientists, writers, and journalists to found the Conservation Council of New Brunswick on October 18, 1969. Kenneth Langmaid served as our first president. The original provisional directors included Robert Strang, Gerald Shaw, and Austin Squires.

In 1979, the Conservation Council hired its first Executive Director, Dana Silk. Dana was succeeded by Janice Harvey in 1983. In 1985, David Coon joined Janice to serve as Policy Director. By 1990, the organization had grown such that it was organizing its work into programs, beginning with its Marine Conservation Program. Sustainable Agriculture and Environmental Health Programs were added in the mid-1990?s. These were followed by the establishment of Forest Conservation, Climate Action, Health Watch Programs, and most recently, Buy Local NB, Freshwater Protection, and Learning Outside.
