Volunteer at any age and any season

Just because snow is on the ground, that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors and shelve your desire to help

Just because snow is on the ground, that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors and shelve your desire to help until it’s is green again. There are lots of winter time volunteer opportunities for all ages.

If you’re looking for a direct, hands-on approach to giving back, you can outside and get your hands dirty, literally. The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Conservation Volunteer program is a great way to care for nature. Working along side NCC staff, volunteers learn how to identify and survey birds, butterflies and dragonflies, control invasive plant species, restore wetlands, build boardwalks and trails – there’s something for every season and every age.

 

Make your holiday break about giving back and help spread the holiday spirit. To learn more about meaningful volunteer opportunities for any season and any age, visit conservationvolunteers.ca.
