Volunteer Opportunities

CPAWS Ottawa Valley is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019 as one of the region's leading wilderness conservation organizations. Over the years, we have contributed to many significant conservation gains and have the privilege to work with a number of passionate people. We are seeking a volunteer with experience creating short videos to help us develop one to three short videos about the organization, the history and opportunities before us to share on social media and at events as a more dynamic introduction to what we do. We have access to some great photography, but not much in the way of video, but we do get out to various locations, such as Gatineau Park, Algonquin Park or the Dumoine River - some key campaign areas from time to time and the volunteer could join us to collect shots. We would also like to interview some staff and volunteers as well as past supporters. We have no video equipment ourselves, but it may be possible for the organization to rent some if required.
Location: 15 Taschereau Street, Gatineau, Quebec (Hull sector)
Deadline: Jan 2, 2019
In 2019, CPAWS Ottawa Valley will be celebrating its 50th anniversary and we have a number of events we would like to host to mark this important milestone! While we have some events lined up, we have lots of space in our calendar for new events as well. We are seeking a dynamic, organized and self starting volunteer to take on the role of Events Coordinator for the organization. The Events Coordinator will work with staff in the office to help build a roster of educational, active and fundraising events for the next year and assist with volunteer recruitment, logistics (venue, budget, etc) and promotion. Examples of planned events for the winter include a guided evening snowshoe hike in early February and an educational talk on Algonquin Park in March. We are expecting about 50 people for the hike and about 150-200 for the lecture. Experience planning events, knowledge of local venues and volunteer coordination would be considered assets.
Location: 15 Taschereau Street in Hull (Gatineau)
Deadline: Jan 2, 2019

We expect this work to require about one day/week of the volunteer's time. The work would need to be completed from our office in Hull. We will provide a work space, computer and plenty of support!
