Adults or teens interested in nature and talking to people.
Ongoing Opportunity (> 1 year)
Duncan Area
Description of Position
We are looking for volunteer to help welcome visitors to the Estuary Nature Centre, located on the beautiful shores of the estuary at Hecate Park in Cowichan Bay.

Volunteer will also explain and assist visitors engaging with our our current interactive exhibits and answer questions. We have a small gift shop for sales, so volunteers will handle cash and take Interac payments, as well as take in membership applications.

We have an activity table for children, microscope station, spotting scope, touch tank and aquariums, as well as other interactive exhibits that offer plenty of opportunities for interaction with and education of visitors of all ages. There is a wildlife viewing tower with a panoramic view of the estuary and an interpretive trail along the shore. Volunteer shifts are usually two hours and can include opening and closing the Centre, helping with programs for school children, or adult educational programs and special events.

Orientation and mentoring are available. We look forward to hearing from you!
