Help the Environment!
Learn More about Nature!

We are currently planning events for next season but things are still very unsettled. The registration form is intended to serve as an expression of interest, and get you on the mailing list to hear about any virtual events, and a heads up once field events start happening again. (Normally there would be a registration fee of $25, but we'll worry about that later.)

Are you a high school student who is keen to earn volunteer hours & help the environment?

We are completing our second year of amazing projects with local environmental partners. We usually meet once or twice a month, mostly on Saturdays (and lately at a variety of times virtually).

We meet at a different place each time since we partner with various local environmental organizations like:

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

Some projects in our first year have been turtle nesting protection and invasive plant management. Some learning opportunities have been winter tracking, an owl prowl, bird banding, and a visit to the University of Waterloo ecology lab. We've recently taken on a salamander monitoring project. There are many more projects and outings to come!

It’s easy to join! Register 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!
