Volunteer | Ecology Action Centre


A note on volunteering in the time of COVID:

Our office on Fern Lane is currently closed to the public, and the majority of meetings and events are happening online. While this puts many of our usual volunteer opportunities on hold, there are still ways to volunteer remotely. Several of our action committees are meeting via Zoom, and the volunteer newsletter will still bring you online calls-to-action for petition and letter-writing campaigns, as well as requests for help doing things like phone calls, transcription, note-taking, research, and other tasks that can be done from home.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact Joanna Bull, Community Engagement Coordinator, at joanna@ecologyaction.ca. Thank you!
