Volunteers bring a unique perspective, varied expertise and an enthusiastic spirit to protecting nature. Our Conservation Volunteers program provides the public with opportunities to monitor nature reserves as a property steward or assist with trail maintenance. More is achieved when we all work together.
Conservation Volunteers events
Join NCC staff for a one-day event to carry out important conservation actions on our nature reserves, such as removing marine debris from coastal areas, maintaining publicly used trails, removing invasive species and carrying out bird surveys. To learn more about Conservation Volunteers events, visit the Conservation Volunteers webpage or email Atlantic.Volunteers@natureconservancy.ca.
Property and trail stewards
Volunteer property and trail stewards help by keeping a watchful eye on our nature reserves through monitoring the property’s condition, noting species of interest and reporting issues, such as illegal wood harvesting or dumping. They may also help maintain trails or install signs.
To inquire about property or trail steward opportunities in Atlantic Canada, please start by filling out this volunteer intake form and we will contact you when an opportunity becomes available. If you have any questions, please email us at Atlantic.Volunteers@natureconservancy.ca.
