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.
Skill Sets We Need
Events: Co-chair; plan and organizing wilderness experiences (canoeing, natural history); speaker series, special focus events; event promotion; administration
Public Relations/Communications: Maintaining website & social media; Messaging to our membership, media and targeted audiences; newsletter; graphic design; drone photography; virtual outreach
Membership & Volunteer Interests: Recruit & welcome new members/volunteers; conduct surveys; maintain lists opportunities; working information booths; records management; volunteer coordinator
Fundraising: Campaign work; grant applications; work with events team on innovative projects
Administrative Assistance: Maintaining records; tracking action items, supporting special initiatives
Planning: Research; policy building; monitoring project developments; site visits; report writing; BMBCL perimeter contacts
Stewardship: Currently under review. Looking after any aspect of existing or new trails is not within our current mandate. Our mission is to make sure the regional park becomes a reality - that in itself is keeping us very busy. 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.
