An Island Home

Prince Edward Island (Canada) is Island Nature Trust’s home and we cherish the land, water and wildlife that make it so special. We are the Island’s first and oldest private land trust, working since 1979 to protect land in PEI and manage it responsibly. Our staff, volunteers and supporters are the life blood of our organization. Read on to learn about the people, motivations and goals of the team behind INT.

Protecting Land for the Future

PEI’s population is growing and our rural landscapes are changing. Now more than ever there is a great need for Islanders to work together to protect the natural assets we love while ensuring we support a sustainable way of life for Islanders. Island Nature Trust invites you to join us in working to protect the Island’s natural spaces, both for our children and the diversity of wildlife that live here.

Artist Heather Millar in her studio in Rice Point

INT is excited to launch a brand new t-shirt series featuring artwork created by local artist Heather Millar. Heather is a professional painter living and working in Prince Edward Island since 2008. Almost entirely self-taught in painting, Heather’s work has evolved into her own unique blend of impressionist melded with realism.

Her style is beautifully represented in these examples modelled by our finance officer Janell MacDonald (Bank Swallow), along with Land & Species Conservation Guardians Michael Salter (Redback Salamander) and Louise Lavoie (Joe Pyeweed).

T-shirts are available at $35 for members and $40 regular price. Sizes for both men’s & women’s (also youth) range in: S, M, L, XL and XXL.

Orders can be reserved and picked up from our office from 8am – 4pm at 15 Crown Drive, Charlottetown. We accept cash and credit card for in-person payments.
