Many people would like to help at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden, but do not want to be tied down to a particular day and time to help out in one of our work groups. We have created a strategy that we call “work nodes” that allows you to work on your own, at your own pace. Under the guidance of one of our long-time volunteers, you will be helped to find a small area of the garden that you would like to adopt. It will then be your responsibility to take care of your node, which may require removal and control of invasive species, planting native plants / shrubs / trees, mulching to discourage unwanted plants, etc., for the entire growing season. Time commitment can vary from one afternoon a month to weekly chores — it’s up to you! Tools, instructions, advice, and feedback will be provided to assist you as you work on your node.

There are a number of areas we are looking to cover including:

Fundraising and Events (multiple opportunities)
Acting as the point of contact for events and fundraisers, these volunteers will lead the events initiatives with the support of your fellow committee members. That said, should you not be able to attend one of the events, you will be responsible for reaching out to the Volunteer Manager to ensure the volunteers have been assigned adequately to support the event.

Media Relations
This volunteer should be connected to the media industry in Canada (both traditional and non-traditional channels). This committee member will lead the outreach on the media front and be responsible to contacting channels as appropriate to promote events, fundraisers, and other initiatives. Likewise, this person should bring creative ideas for stories.

Blog Post Writing
Working with the Social Media Coordinator on a content calendar, this volunteer should have a flare for storytelling. Posts might include tips for the season or holiday, events, or a celebration of one of the quirky animal holidays out there.

Members of this committee will meet regularly to strategies and brainstorm ways to increase awareness. Although you may be designated a specific area of focus, you are encouraged to contribute to other areas within the committee.
There is a great opportunity to make these positions yours and customize them to your strengths. Have an idea to help us increase awareness? We want to hear it!
