Get involved, build a legacy
By getting involved with Fundy National Park's volunteer program, you can help us to protect and preserve this special place and share its wonders with others. You'll discover meaningful and hands-on ways to deepen your connection to incredible natural spaces, not to mention meet new people, build career skills, and have fun!
"Parks Canada and volunteers share ideas, knowledge, talent and skills to build a legacy for Canada's natural and historic treasures. By lending a hand, Parks Canada volunteers feel connected, enrich their lives and make a difference."
Upcoming volunteer opportunities:
- Conservation caretakers: Get involved in the maintenance of important ecological systems, by participating in activities such as invasive plant removal. Many hands make light work.
- Public Outreach and Education: Help our Outreach team showcase what makes Parks Canada’s treasured places so special at events in your community.
Upcoming Training Workshops
- Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 10 am to 12 pm
- Saturday, August 17, 2019 - 10 am to 12 pm
Learn to contribute to our Inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic Salmon recovery program! Training sessions will involve travel on foot to the Upper Salmon River, learning about scientific monitoring techniques, and how to identify and count endangered Atlantic salmon.
Participants will gain skills needed to record valuable data for our ecosystem monitoring program and help with the recovery of an important species-at-risk. Once trained, volunteers will have the knowledge they need to collect data on their own.
No registration required. Meet at the Headquarters' visitor centre.
* Participants must be comfortable working near fast moving water and able to hike 8 km.
** Training Sessions offered in English only.
