JSG has monthly work party events to remove invasive plants and plant native species, depending on the season. Volunteers are the foundation of JSG and how we perform our work. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life to our monthly work parties and to help with other supporting tasks.
By volunteering with JSG, you can:
- Explore your passion for nature and the environment
- Learn about native and invasive plants and why invasives are a problem
- Make a difference and give back to your community
- Get outside, be active and have fun working with others
If you want to join our dynamic team of volunteers, come to our next workparty (usually the second Sunday). Or join our email list and we’ll send you a reminder a few days before each workparty.
** Due to the current health order in B.C. we have cancelled our work parties for the time being. Please check in with us in 2021 about future volunteer opportunities. We look forward to working with you again in the new year. Stay safe! **
There are many consequences of today’s societal disconnect with nature, but one stands out from the rest because of its potentially catastrophic consequences: our kids are the future stewards of planet Earth, and they are woefully unprepared for this awesome responsibility. Most young people don’t know that the earth now needs constant stewardship – or what that stewardship even looks like.
