Join The Team

Volunteers are at the heart of what we do. EALT Volunteers take great satisfaction in their activities, knowing they're making a true difference by conserving natural areas, building community support, and educating the public about environmental stewardship. A day in the field with our Volunteer Team is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and have fun working towards a common goal. Check out our Volunteer Manual to find out about the many ways you can get involved throughout the year.

We send an email to our Volunteer Team once a month with upcoming volunteer opportunities. Join our team by subscribing to our volunteer email, contact Meghan, our Conservation Coordinator, at meghan@ealt.ca for more information, or check out our upcoming volunteer events.

Corporate Volunteer Events

A number of employers allow their staff to do a volunteer day every year and/or arrange for group volunteer days. Contact your Human Resources department to find out if you are eligible, then get in touch to arrange your volunteer day! Or, if you are looking for a team bonding event, we would be happy to work with your group to find a suitable opportunity. Some of our previous corporate volunteer events have included building bat boxes, removing invasive plants, planting trees and shrubs, removing barbed wire fences, and more! Opportunities are dependent on our conservation priorities at the time. For more information, contact Meghan, our Conservation Coordinator, at meghan@ealt.ca.

I think that there needs to be a voice for nature and the lands we live on. I am so grateful for organizations such as EALT, who’s primary concern is to promote, conserve and maintain natural areas for people to experience and enjoy.
