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:

Carpentry Volunteer
We are looking for a volunteer with some knowledge and experience with carpentry to help with building pedestals for interpretive signage, as well as the installation of it in the Fredericton area. For more details, please contact communications@ntnb.org.

Policy Analyst/Writer
We are seeking an individual to help us update our policies. For more information, contact Renata at naturetrust@ntnb.org.

Flora/Fauna Surveyors
Wildlife surveyors are needed to help monitor and identify wildlife on our nature preserves this spring/summer. If you have a keen eye for identifying different kinds of flora, fauna and creatures, we would love to have you join us. Please contact our Stewardship Coordinator at ntnbpreserves@ntnb.org.

Trail Maintenance
We’re looking for adventurous individuals to help maintain the health of our preserve trails. Duties will include basic grooming and the disposal of any litter found. Please contact our Stewardship Coordinator at ntnbpreserves@ntnb.org.

GPS Data Collector
We are also actively seeking volunteers to help record the GPS coordinates of our many preserve trails. Please contact our Stewardship Coordinator at ntnbpreserves@ntnb.org.

Research/Report Writing

If you have a knack for research and report writing, we are currently looking for some assistance. This would require some visitation to the office, but could also be done from home.

Please contact Renata at naturetrust@ntnb.org or 457-2398.

Pro Bono Legal/Accounting Services

If you are a professional with some time to donate to a good cause, the Nature Trust is currently seeking pro bono legal services on the topic of property law and company acts, as well as a pro bono accountant to help with tax scenario questions.

Your services would be greatly valued! Please contact Renata at naturetrust@ntnb.org or 457-2398.

Management Plan Volunteers

We’re looking for assistance in developing management plans for several new nature preserves. The final product of this volunteer opportunity is a document that is widely used by Nature Trust staff, volunteers, and other members to help guide future plans and activities on the preserves.

If you’re a strong writer, possess excellent organizational skills, and have a passion for nature, please contact Renata at naturetrust@ntnb.org.

Administrative Volunteers

If you have a few hours throughout the week to come work at the Nature Trust office and help with some general administrative duties, come join us! Some examples of administrative tasks we need help with include filing, organizing, preparing for newsletters send outs, updating inventory sheets, and more.

Interested individuals should contact Sarah at admin@ntnb.org.

If none of these opportunities suit you, the Nature Trust is open to many ideas and suggestions. Also, the organization is often seeking self-starting volunteers to get involved with the following:

  • Translation
  • Organizing, or joining, workdays for nature preserves
  • Monitoring nature preserves
  • Biological inventories
  • Fundraising and promotion
  • Researching land protection issues
  • Desktop publishing
  • Graphic design
  • Stuffing envelopes
  • Trail maintenance

Please call the office at (506) 457-2398 or email naturetrust@ntnb.org if any of the above appeals to you.
