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 species and natural habitats. The program provides 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 gives volunteers the opportunity to join NCC staff on projects that contribute to the long-term stewardship of 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. This includes monitoring species and reporting issues, such as illegal wood harvesting or vandalism. Monitoring helps 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 robust volunteer program across the Atlantic Region. To learn more or get involved, contact Claire Ferguson at 506-300-5726.
