Thursday, February 5, 2009 (All day)

From the time the Wilderness Committee began in 1980, volunteers have played a key role. Our successes couldn't have been achieved without the help, energy and skills of our volunteers. The Wilderness Committee is a citizen-funded charitable organization, and every day people of all ages and  backgrounds help us preserve Canada's wilderness and help build healthy, sustainable communities.

Volunteers can donate their time, skills and energy to a variety of projects and activities through our head office in Vancouver. Our Volunteer Program is designed to provide volunteers an opportunity to get involved in the Wilderness Committee’s campaigns. By helping out, volunteers can learn through first-hand experience that perseverance and dedication make all the difference when preserving wilderness and helping promote healthy communities.

All volunteers are provided with instructions, training and support that make volunteering with the Wilderness Committee a satisfying and fulfilling experience.

Volunteers can get involved in all kinds of the different work and get the chance to support many of the Wilderness Committee’s campaigns.

We need dedicated, reliable, enthusiastic people to help out in the bush, in your community, and in the office. Please use the links to find out which work is most suitable for you.
