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. Even a small contribution can make a big impact at ABNC. And there is a wide range of opportunities for those wanting to make a contribution. We provide orientation and training for all new and returning volunteers throughout the year. If you would like more information or to express your interest in current or upcoming opportunities, please give us a call 250.260.4227 or email [email protected] Thank you for your consideration - we look forward to hearing from you!
