Working with the KWRC as a monitoring technician has been a great opportunity to build many skill sets, enhance my knowledge in several respects, and to increase my social and networking skills within the local community.

~ Miranda Morrison, KWRC Education Outreach Assistant 2018 / Monitoring Tech 2019

I had a great summer and was able to build on some new skills, form connections with local groups, and learn more about riparian zone restoration and storm water management! I loved working with the school groups, and had fun teaching kids how to use a drill (not as scary as you’d think!) to assemble habitat boxes for birds.

The following videos will help to give you an idea of the various tasks we do here at the KWRC, particularly during the field season, when we have summer students on board to help with the extra work load (this could be you!) It can be hard work in the rain or hot sun, but we certainly have our fun - plus we know we're making a positive difference for native biodiversity, river health, and in our communities!

Volunteer Opportunities

 

The KWRC has numerous opportunities for volunteers to get to know our watershed, interact with nature, learn more about the environment in which we live and to gain valuable skills. Whether you are looking for a long term commitment or simply an afternoon, we have a task you can assist with. Some of these are listed below.

CoCoRaHS

If you enjoy watching the weather and are willing to make a long term commitment, then this is an opportunity for you! 

Monitoring a CoCoRaHS precipitation station is a fun and unique citizen science volunteer experience and takes very little time to set up and check on a regular basis.

Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup - September 26, 2020

Shoreline Cleanup

If a one-day event is more your style, we host a shoreline clean up event the third week in September each year that would be a great fit for you!  For more on this event you can watch the video below and give us a call to find out how you can register for the next event.

Tree Planting

Tree Planting

The KWRC hosts regular tree planting and willow staking events as well.  Through this activity you can see how our past efforts are now contributing to our future restoration efforts.  We can also customize a tree planting event for you class or community group.  Simply give us a call and speak to our staff about what we can offer you.
