WATERLOO REGION NATURE TEENS

Volunteer!
Help the Environment!
Learn More about Nature!

Be part of this brand new club! Waterloo Region Nature is looking for teenagers (high school students) who are keen to earn volunteer hours & help the environment with monthly habitat restoration projects and learning opportunities.

We meet once a month, usually from 1-3 pm on the last Saturday of the month (but not in December).

We’ll meet at a different place each time since we’ll be partnering with various local environmental organizations like:

the Grand River Conservation Authority,
rare Charitable Research Reserve in Cambridge,
and the City of Kitchener Natural Areas.

Our first projects have been turtle nesting protection and invasive plant management. There are more projects and outings to come - Possibilities include bird-banding, an owl prowl, a visit to the University of Waterloo ecology lab and lots of planting!

It’s easy to join! Register and pay the $25 registration fee using the button below. Once we hear from you, we’ll keep you up-to-date on all our upcoming projects. For more info, write to Marg Paré at teens@waterlooregionnature.ca

Can’t wait to meet you and get to work!
