There are many ways to get involved and help support our conservation work in Saskatchewan.
Become a Conservation Volunteer
The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) Conservation Volunteers program engages people in the conservation of natural habitats while providing a meaningful, hands-on education experience in ecologically significant natural areas. All events are designed to ensure volunteer time is dedicated to critical conservation actions.
Since 2008, we have offered volunteers in Saskatchewan the opportunity to join NCC staff on projects designed to contribute to long-term stewardship of our conservation areas. Conservation Volunteers events in Saskatchewan include tree planting, counting and recording native flora and fauna, even upgrading a bison handling facility at Old Man on His Back Ranch.
Become a Leader in Conservation

Saskatchewan's NCC Leaders in Conservation program has been designed with you in mind. Your ongoing yearly contribution of $1,000 or more helps NCC's Saskatchewan Region profile its residents as leaders in conserving and protecting Saskatchewan's natural heritage. Membership in NCC's Leaders in Conservation program ensures a tour of some NCC properties to see, first hand, how these contributions are making a difference.
Each donation results in a charitable receipt and recognition through NCC's publications. An open invitation is also extended to those donating funds to join other volunteers in education experiences and species-counting CV days.

Property Watch matches volunteers with NCC owned properties that require a little extra attention.
