Volunteer Testimonials

Sarah, OURSpace Garden Assistant and Special Event Assistant

“The other volunteers are wonderful; it is so nice to connect with like minded people. By working in OURSpace, I have also learned about the native plants of the black oak savannah and how unique an ecosystem it is. It is great to be a part of such an amazing organization!”

 
 
 

Amma, Assistant Camp Counsellor

“As someone interested in teaching science, I found that volunteering at HPNC inspired me to think about ways in which we can instill in children a sense of wonder that can be channeled into learning and nurturing environmental stewardship.”

 
 
 
 

Lena, OURSpace Garden Assistant

“This year I felt a call to find ways to give something back to the park and in June I came across a volunteer opportunity at the Nature Centre. A few times a week I came to weed the newly established OURSpace garden, feeling so close to Mather Earth, so grounded and recharged.”

“What I love about volunteering with HPNC is that they are like one big family. Everyone there makes you feel like a real part of the family, and it doesn’t feel like work! When I volunteer here I forget I’m even volunteering. I have just as much fun as the campers!”

“High Park has always been a playground for me – a little serenity away from this concrete jungle. Once I discovered the High Park Nature Centre in fall 2015, I was eager to jump in as much as possible. (…) I’m growing in new nature and survival knowledge every day.”
