Volunteering in the Castle

Back by popular demand... Our West Castle Wetland Ecological Reserve needs your help to control the weeds that are appearing in this sensitive place. So, put on your work gloves and join a fun crew of volunteers on June 23, 2014 for our seventh annual Weed Pull in the West Castle Wetland Ecological Reserve.

Last year we had volunteers from non-profit, community, private, municipal, provincial and federal groups! It was a great day to get a lot of work done and meet so many different people!

This is one of several volunteer opportunities offered by the Castle-Crown Wilderness Coalition this summer within the Castle.

Contact me for more information about how to lend a hand. My contact info is below to the right.
