Conservation Volunteers Needed

Do you have a passion for nature and a desire to get involved in conservation activities?

The Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club has a variety of opportunities for you to participate directly in the Conservation of the Niagara Escarpment and its unique ecosystem. The Bruce Trail Conservancy owns or manages over 250 properties along the Niagara Escarpment. Conservation Volunteer’s activities focus on these particular lands by giving nature a helping hand. Volunteers may contribute to one-time projects or routine teamwork such as:
-Help control invasive species through seasonal projects.
-Encourage native plants species by assisting the re-establishment in areas where they once flourished. This also helps to re-establish species that rely on the plants.
-Help with species data collection through reporting sightings of plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, monarch butterflies, etc.
-Assist land stewards with property line boundary staking.
-Contribute to restoration projects.
-Share knowledge with others through nature hikes or other events.
-Serve as a Land Steward for a specific property https://brucetrail.org/pages/resources/volunteer-resources/land-stewards

Helpful skills and experience include:
-Interest in restoration projects such as removing invasive species and/or planting native flora
-Speaking and teaching skills for nature walks and events
-Expertise in species identification (flora and /or fauna)
-GPS skills
-Organization skills for conservation events
-A relevant hobby or passion you would like to share with BTC and others
-If you are fit enough to hike, you will also be fit enough for most activities.
