Volunteer

We need many volunteers to create and maintain a strong and impactful organization. As one of our volunteers, you will be joining others who bring a passion for this outstanding, proposed, urban wilderness park to all of our activities whether indoor or outdoor. We are a 100% volunteer-based organization and need both scheduled and short notice help.  Many hands make light work. We would love to have you share your skills.

Stewardship:  Currently under review. Looking after any aspect of existing or new trails is not within our current mandate.

However, there are many components  to stewardship that do not involve trail management - those terms of reference remain a 'work in progress' and your involvement in that process is welcome.
