Nature Trust of New Brunswick

Current-VolunteerThe Nature Trust would not be able to operate without the support of many dedicated volunteers. Thank you to those who have supported us in this way over the years!

Here is a list of current volunteer opportunities available with the Nature Trust:

NEW – Nature Preserve Web Description Writer
Do you have a knack for research, synthesizing information and writing? We are looking for some help with drafting descriptions about our nature preserves for our website (see example 
here). Volunteers will be provided with information and a template to work from. Please contact Jessica at communications@ntnb.org for more information.

Community Stewardship Group Leaders and Volunteers
Are you interested in getting involved with the Nature Trust in your community? The Nature Trust is developing stewardship groups for a number of our nature preserves throughout the province, and we are searching for individuals to become dedicated stewards in their own regions. If you would like to learn more, please email our Stewardship Coordinator Richelle at ntnbpreserves@ntnb.org.

Management Plan Writing
We are looking for assistance in writing and updating the management plans for our nature preserves. This task includes interpreting and documenting the ecological, geological and historical features of our properties, as well as identifying directions for action in the future. If you would like to learn more, please contact Richelle at ntnbpreserves@ntnb.org
