The Nova Scotia Women That Hunt is building a conservation community that strives to be more culturally diverse and inclusive,
creating opportunities that expose, educate and inspire.
We are a group of women who turned our passion into a not for profit with a vision to expose, educate and inspire others towards living a more self sustaining lifestyle.
We are building a community of individuals where we learn and grow together. We are connecting people through valuable programs. We do this through mentor relationships, events, education, social gatherings and networking.
