Get some fresh air and exercise while roaming the trails as a Parks Ambassador! Our volunteers walk in a park or trail on a regular basis with the purpose of greeting park visitors, offering information, answering questions and helping visitors understand their role in helping to protect the park. They also provide helpful feedback to Saanich Parks by observing, recording and reporting on defined issues by recording their activities.

Come work your muscles and your mind with the Pulling Together Volunteer Program. Our volunteers work on high rocky outcrops, creek side forests, wetlands, wildflower meadows and waterways. This hands-on, inclusive, ecological restoration program has been in place since 1999. We have teams of active Pulling Together volunteers in more than 40 different parks and natural areas. Volunteering outdoors with other like-minded community member helps care for your parks and helps you take care of you too.
There are 3 ways to volunteer with the Pulling Together program:
Drop-in Volunteer: choose not to register and come out to help as they can and at various sites (but must sign liability waiver for each event).
Restoration Volunteer: registered volunteers who commit to a minimum one year involvement and who may volunteer at one or more different sites, helping as they feel able.
Lead Steward: registered volunteers who commit to a minimum of one year involvement and work with staff to lead efforts at their park.
