Our Celebration!

In 2017, Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador is celebrating the start of its 25th year of environmental and cultural programming in the province. To mark this silver anniversary, CCNL has a variety of events and celebrations planned throughout the year!

To celebrate our 25th year, CCNL is giving back to the community in a new way on the 25th of each month! If your organization needs a helping hand in the months ahead, get in touch: kpower@ccnl.ca
