Volunteering with The Riverwood Conservancy

We are not currently accepting applications for individual volunteers. Please check this page again at a later date to apply. Thank you for your interest in volunteering for The Riverwood Conservancy.

Volunteering with The Riverwood Conservancy can take many forms – gardening, wildlife monitoring, education, forestry, marketing, event planning, committee participation – but they all support one purpose: to create a community that lives in harmony with nature.

No matter how you get involved, you’ll be making a difference for our shared natural world. Gain new skills, put your existing ones to use, and create connections with caring people like you.

Volunteer a Group to be a Riverwood Conservation Crew

Are you looking for a fun and meaningful way for your business or organization to give back? Look no further! When you book a group volunteering activity with the Riverwood Conservancy, you’ll help make Mississauga greener, and make a positive impact on your local environment. As a Riverwood Conservation Crew, your team will support the preservation of Riverwood by actively participating in conservation activities on site. Fees apply.

Summer Volunteer Program

Our Summer Volunteer Program is open to anyone looking to have fun outdoors, be part of a team, and meet new people. But the program is particularly helpful for Ontario high school students looking to complete their mandatory community service hours.

Volunteers in our Summer Program make a positive impact on the local environment by supporting our conservation and horticulture programs. You can take part in forest and wildlife monitoring, natural areas restoration, invasive species removal, gardening, and caring for fish and turtles.

The Summer Volunteer Program runs through July and August, and volunteers will have the opportunity to sign-up for as many shifts as they would like during those months.

Volunteer Resources

We’ve created the following documents to help our volunteers better understand their responsibilities and their roles with The Riverwood Conservancy, and to promote a safe and healthy environment for staff, volunteers, and visitors.
