Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary is looking for Summer Naturalist Assistants. You can connect with nature and children through volunteering. Help create a welcoming, safe and fun learning environment for children to explore the sanctuary.

The Southern Vancouver Island Nature Trails Society is looking for volunteer trail-builders for natural surface trail-building. By helping to build safe, sustainable, accessible nature trails for the community, you can make it easier for people to access parks, the forest, lakes, rivers, streams, meadows, marshes, mountain tops and the ocean to enjoy the natural environment.
Volunteer trail-builders help with digging in the dirt, moving rocks and carrying buckets of dirt or rocks. Other activities might include clipping and moving bushes, and carrying lumber for bridges. They work outside in the forest all year long, so the weather can range from very hot days to very cold and wet ones. They generally work on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm.
