We are always looking for good people like you!

The strength of Allan Brooks Nature Centre is in our volunteer supporters and donors, in fact we couldn’t do it without you! We are grateful for the many hundreds of hours of volunteer contributions we receive each year, which helps to sustain our public programming, bringing nature interpretive experiences, events and programs to life for youth and their families in our community.

We provide orientation and training for all new and returning volunteers throughout the year.
