Parks Services is building on the spirit of volunteerism and developing a strong volunteer base in Regional Parks. There are many volunteer opportunities available for a variety of abilities, ages, and demographics..
If you have a passion for nature and are interested in volunteering in your local Regional Parks, check out the Volunteer Positions and the Steps to Become a Volunteer in Parks below. .
Volunteer Stewardship Opportunities
If you would like to volunteer but are not interested in long term positions, we have volunteer events available on weekends. These volunteer activities require registration but they allow you to choose which events will fit your schedule.

Volunteer Positions Available
Volunteer Events Crew will assist the Events Coordinator with set up and take down during the various events and activities held throughout the year.
Activities occur at a variety of Regional Parks and we support Families as Volunteer Events Crew members!
Do you like to hike in our parks? Are you techno savvy?
GPS Inventory Volunteers assist in data collection of assets within our parks (i.e. signs, benches and bridges). Data is collected using the GPS on your cell phone and uploaded to our site via WiFi.
Nature Assistant Volunteers work directly with our Park Interpreters.
They help interpreters deliver programs such as the Tracks Walking group and Wild Walks.
Stewardship Opportunities for Groups
Community groups wishing to do a stewardship activity in Regional Parks can contact the Volunteer Coordinator for ideas or help planning the activity.
This includes activities such as participation in Earth Day, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup or an environmental project identified by the group.
Trail Ambassador Volunteers assist regional parks staff by providing a presence in the park and by reporting on the condition of park trails, bridges, fences and facilities. They also provide information to the public about regional parks.
