The organizations of Nature Cowichan depend on volunteers.  We are seeking volunteers for our boards and help with membership management, fundraising, office support, publicity, public events, and newsletters.  We also have the following specific opportunities:

Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre docents work 2-hour shifts or assist with school groups at the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre in Cowichan Bay.  Training is provided. Other Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre volunteers help with the management committee, display creation, maintenance, and other fun and useful tasks.  For more information or to sign up visit cowichanestuary.ca

The Cowichan Valley Naturalists have a program of presentations and outings for members and the general public.  In addition they engage in a number of ongoing citizen science projects monitoring birds, salmon, eelgrass, water quality, wildflowers, invasive plants, and forage fish.  Join the Cowichan Valley Naturalists to participate.  Contact:  cvns@naturecowichan.net.

The Cowichan Land Trust leads stream and wetland stewardship projects, including cleanups, invasive plant removal, planting shrubs and trees,  streamkeepers, rescuing western toads, transplanting eelgrass, and marking storm drains.  Contact:  250-746-6141 or info@cowichanlandtrust.ca
