Membership May

Join us for a month-long celebration of the EAC community!

For the month of May, we’re celebrating the Ecology Action Centre’s community – the collective voice of thousands of individuals who believe that Nova Scotians and their families deserve a fair and vibrant future; one of respect, belonging and resilience. 

We’ll be hosting a series of events throughout the province to celebrate our awesome members and help bring other like-minded people into the EAC community.   

We’d love for you to join us! 

Check out the event listings below and bring your friends and family to celebrate Membership May with us!
