The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is Canada's voice for public wilderness protection. We're working to keep at least half of Canada's public land and water wild - forever. Campaigns of the Ottawa Valley Chapter include the Ottawa Greenbelt, Gatineau Park and the Eastern Wolf.


Volunteer Opportunities

We are seeking a volunteer with graphic design experience to create a tree identification sheet for a local park where we are working with a community group to provide education programs to the community. We will provide you with a list of tree species found there, we also have access to a few existing guides from which you can copy / paste images or there are plenty from the internet we could use (Pinterest, etc). Your job would be to ensure it has a uniform and professional look. We would like the document to be very visual, with photos of the leaf, seed/cone and bark of each tree species - the only text would be the name of the tree in English and French. Ideally, we would like this document to be about 2 pages, ideally one sheet back to back that we can laminate for groups to use. We would like this to be done within the next 2-3 weeks if possible.
Location: 15 Taschereau Street, Suite 240, Gatineau
Deadline: Jul 21, 2019
CPAWS Ottawa Valley has been invited to set up an information booth at this year's Valhalla Sound Circus event in Kazabazua, Quebec. You can learn more about the festival at: www.valhallasoundcircus.com. The volunteer opportunity is on Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21 from about 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM - hours are to be confirmed and are flexible. The volunteers would be responsible for setting up an information table with handout materials, possibly a game or other educational activity and petitions on which we are collecting signatures. We are seeking at least one volunteer with a car as there is no transportation available. We will reimburse mileage. No experience with CPAWS is required, we will provide some basic training prior to the event. The event is bilingual and while it is not mandatory that you speak both languages, we are hoping to have at least one bilingual volunteer among the group. We are seeking 4 people. This will be our first time at this festival, we are looking forward to meeting a new demographic and sharing information and engaging them in conservation.
Location: 15 Taschereau Street, Suite 240
The event is in Kazabazua Quebec
Deadline: Jul 18, 2019
