The Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea is seeking a Volunteer Naturalist!

Join our team of dedicated volunteers and have some fun down near the water in Sidney.

Greet our visitors and help them explore the habitats and marine life of the Salish Sea. ** Don't worry; you don't need to be an expert.  We provide the training you need to answer questions about our marine life. It’s the knowledge and friendliness of our volunteers that inspire our visitors to return again and again.

We require a minimum commitment of 60 hours as the training is quite extensive, working a minimum of 5 hours per month. Each shift is 2.5 hours and includes a short enrichment/briefing session so you can learn something new, or update your knowledge on our animals and their habitats.

English Language Comprehension: Working proficiency is required.

Learn about the Salish Sea bio-region and conservation. We provide the training.
- Meet new people. We have a wonderfully diverse team
- Receive a reference after 60 hours of volunteering
- Enrichment and social events
- Give back to the community and your environment
