Thank you for your interest in volunteering!

The generous contributions of volunteers enable us to achieve our mission to protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life. By bringing your skills, knowledge and passion to DSF, you allow us to achieve work that would otherwise be unattainable, see things from a fresh perspective, and further our work towards a healthy environment.

Our current volunteer opportunities are displayed below. We thank all applicants and encourage you to apply for positions that best suit your interests and experience. Your application will be kept on file and considered for future positions as they arise.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our Foundation. For volunteers, issues matter, as do community and the future. Their spirit, enthusiasm, and pride suffuse the Foundation. To me, this passion is the glue that binds people together, and makes tangible our shared values and hopes.

Become a citizen scientist

Are you a science lover but not a scientist? Becoming a citizen scientist has never been easier. A citizen science project can involve one person or millions of people collaborating for a common goal. As a citizen scientist, you’ll help us gain a better understanding of the world and our place in it.

Butterflyway Rangers at St. Anthony Catholic Elementary School

Protect pollinators

The volunteer-led Butterflyway Project grows habitat to feed and shelter pollinators such as bees and butterflies in neighbourhoods throughout Canada. Since 2017, we’ve recruited Butterflyway Rangers in more than 300 communities. They connect with friends, neighbours and local groups and plant habitat gardens in yards, schoolyards, corporate grounds, boulevards and parks. When 12 or more pollinator gardens are established in a neighbourhood, a new Butterflyway is born.
