MTRI is a non-profit charitable organization, which promotes environmental research and education in the rural communities of the Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve, especially throughout Queen's County and around Caledonia.

As a community charity, we create ongoing fundraisers to generate revenue to support staff and volunteers as they learn and share their knowledge about the local environment.

Take a close look at the postcards and greeting cards available, to support our efforts and enlighten your friends and family!



Our first artistic endeavor focused on creating beautiful postcards that highlight eight charismatic species at risk in Nova Scotia. Elkpen painted the elegant images and designed the classy postcards, which are sold for $2 each or all eight for $10.
