Conservation Volunteers 2017: The stories behind the numbers
Every year, we measure the contributions our volunteers make for nature through our Conservation Volunteers (CV) program and share stories about our successes, challenges and experiences. While conservation is at the heart of everything we do, it’s vitally important for us to celebrate the thousands of people who help us achieve our goals every year.
By December 2017, over 200 volunteer events, engaging close to 2,750 Canadians, contributed close to 13,200 hours of actions dedicated to nature.

Behind every CV event is a story of people, special places and the species that depend upon them.
Highlights from the 2017 CV Season:
Alberta volunteers built homes for native bees and planted 415 native shrubs and flowers to increase bee habitat.
Volunteers documented more than 1,700 butterflies in Ontario's Rice Lake Plains to help with stewardship initiatives.
"There's something special about being a volunteer with NCC. My wife and I look forward to each event, knowing it will be a positive experience, with great future implications."
Jake De leeuw, Conservation Volunteer
