Science & Innovation

Your contribution aids in the advancement of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education for Indigenous youth in Atlantic Canada, nurturing a new generation of innovators and thinkers.

Let's Heal the Hemlocks

Your support for the “Heal the Hemlocks” campaign helps protect and restore the ancient Eastern Hemlock forests in Nova Scotia, preserving a vital part of the region’s natural heritage and ecological balance. These forests, under threat from the invasive hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), provide essential ecological functions, support diverse wildlife, and hold immense cultural significance. Your contribution aids in combatting this threat and ensuring the survival of these majestic trees for the 7 generations.

Our sister company, Ulnooweg Indigenous Communities Foundation, is also deeply committed to advancing Indigenous causes and is a registered charity. If you’re interested in supporting broader initiatives like Indigenous language preservation, environmental conservation, or community development, we invite you to explore the various campaigns led by the Foundation.
