We Welcome Volunteers...You Should Be One!
Volunteers are the key to The Friends of Presqu'ile Park. Our association is totally run by volunteers and, as such, we rely on our members and friends to help with projects, committees, and fund-raising events.
Much of what you see in Presqu'ile Park has been funded or built by the Friends. According to Ontario Parks, since the Friends were formed in 1988, we have contributed over $5 million into the Park. This is a remarkable achievement, made possible by each and every one of our volunteers.
Guess what? We can always use more help. How great would it feel to build a trail that thousands of visitors will enjoy every year? Or work a special event that raises funds for the education and environment programs we run? There are so many ways you can help as a volunteer – from getting down and dirty in the park to attending team meetings. And we appreciate every hour.
Volunteers can participate in opportunities such as:
- Special Event Weekends in the Park: Waterfowl Weekend, Warblers and Whimbrels Weekend, History Weekend, Monarchs and Migrants Weekend
- Fundraising Activities: raffle ticket sales, weekend barbecues, Christmas at Presqu'ile Arts and Crafts Show
- Community Events: History Day, Canada Day, Applefest
- Working in the Park: trail monitoring trail building, environmental initiatives
- Interpreting in the Nature Centre or Lighthouse Interpretive Centre
- Staffing the Lighthouse Gift Shop
- Joining a Committee: Membership, Volunteer, Finance and Fund-raising, Education and Interpretation, Communications and Public Relations, Board of Directors
