Regional Parks protect natural areas and connect people to nature.
There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities in our parks, including habitat restoration (environmental stewardship), special events helper, Beachkeepers, or hosting at visitor centres.
Some volunteer opportunities may come from park partners, such as park associations, who are separate, nonprofit entities that engage in stewardship and special events in Regional Parks as well.
Most Regional Park activities are seasonal in nature with opportunities available largely during the spring, summer and fall. More details on all these areas of volunteering can be found below.

Lend nature a helping hand in fun and interesting ways - remove invasive plants, monitor wildlife, plant native trees and shrubs, conduct bird surveys and more.
These opportunities tend to be short term and occasional, as opposed to having regular scheduling. Feel free to attend as many as interests you.
Help connect visitors to nature by volunteering at regional park events - be a welcome tent host, deliver an activity with park interpreters or assist with event logistics.
These tend to be short term and occasional opportunities.
Get involved with one of our park associations – non-profit groups that work with regional parks staff on projects and activities ranging from habitat restoration to nature education to special events.
Opportunities with park associations include short-term occasional opportunities like helping with park association led stewardship and special events, or supporting/leading educational and interpretive programming.
Learn new skills and gain hands-on experience in data collection, public education and marine stewardship. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old and able to commit a minimum of 30 hours (during weekends) throughout the summer.
