Yampatika seeks volunteers for programs; training provided

Yampatika is seeking volunteers to help support naturalists leading summer environmental education programs. Volunteers help with geology and wildflower walks, as well as interpretive walks at Fish Creek Falls. They do not lead programs but rather provide support, so no experience or environmental education credentials are required.

Volunteers typically support the naturalist leading a program by greeting and talking to participants, being friendly and encouraging, staying at the back of the group to ensure the group stays together, learning about and enjoying the outdoors and taking photos to share on social media after the program
