Through our new Property Watch Program, we’re matching interested volunteers with Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) properties in southern and central Saskatchewan. Join on your own, with your class, your family or any other like-minded individuals or groups who share a passion for nature. You can visit your adopted property regularly, or when you can. You can complete species counts, conduct property clean-ups or try your hand at installing signs, cleaning out bird boxes or even removing weeds. NCC's expert staff will provide you with the necessary training and tools you will require to manage your adopted property.

How does it work?

To get you started, we will meet with you about expectations and activities. You’ll then receive some reporting forms, maps, a nature guide and more.

Groups of all ages, from youth to seniors, are welcome. You choose an area of the province you would like to adopt and visit, let us know of your interest…and we’ll do the rest. All we ask is that you let us know. Tell us you want to learn more about natural areas and would like to lend a hand to help conserve habitat or your favourite plant, animal or fish. We’ll then find a property that fits your needs; right here, in Saskatchewan.

Attention students: Become a land steward!

NCC wants to help you gain the skills you need to take part in a competitive work force! Property Watchers gain land stewardship experience by heading out into the field and participating in hands on conservation processes. Together, we can help you work towards achieving your career goals!
