There are many ways to get involved and help support our work in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada's Conservation Volunteers program engages people in the protection of Canada's biodiversity while providing a meaningful, hands-on educational experiences in ecologically significant natural areas. Our events are carefully designed to ensure your time is dedicated to critical conservation action. The Conservation Volunteers program offers volunteers opportunities to join staff on projects designed to contribute to the long-term stewardship of ecologically significant properties owned and managed by NCC and our partners, right across Canada.
While NCC does its best to monitor all of our nature reserves regularly, we sometimes recruit property stewards from the local community to be our eyes and ears on the ground. Property stewards can help by keeping a watchful eye on our nature reserves, which includes monitoring species and reporting issues such as illegal wood harvesting or vandalism. This helps to inform NCC’s ongoing property management and ensures that we are doing all that we can to conserve the ecological integrity of our lands.
NCC is in the process of developing a more comprehensive volunteer program across the Atlantic Region. If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, contact Courtney at 1-877-231-4400.
