Volunteering

Are you curious like an explorer? Do you like to solve problems like a researcher? Do you enjoy participating in community projects? Do you like to talk about what you have learned? Join a scientist in the field, share your knowledge with others, or lead a walk in the Rouge. The opportunities are endless!

As Rouge Park transitions to Canada's first national urban park, Parks Canada manages teams of volunteers and partners with various community-based groups to complete educational and on-the-ground work in the park and watershed. Whether you would like to volunteer on a one-time or yearly basis, get behind the scenes, learn something new and make a difference!

There are lots of ways you can be a part of the action. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Play a part in special events or education programs - get active and celebrate at Parks Day, participate in interpretive programs, take part in or lead a guided outing in the Rouge...
  • Share your discoveries and knowledge with visitors - interact as a park ambassador, walk leader, campground host, tour guide helper or photographer...
  • Study, restore and conserve our heritage - take part in the annual Winter Bird Count or Frog Watch programs, help collect vital wildlife information, participate in plant inventories, butterfly counts, species-at-risk monitoring...
  • Take care of the land and the history - join a shoreline clean-up initiative, take part in native tree and wildflower plantings, attend a discovery workshop...

As a volunteer, you can share your ideas, knowledge, talent and skills with Parks Canada to engage current and future generations of stewards to connect with and protect the Rouge for the benefit, education and enjoyment of Canadians now and for countless future generations.
