Volunteer

Covid-19: volunteer workshops are resuming in accordance with Alberta’s ‘Open for Summer’ Plan:

We are currently looking for volunteers to help remove Spotted Knapweed in July and August along the river edge (times and dates t.b.a.). Rough terrain and access along steep trails means volunteers do need a reasonable level of fitness and physical ability – we also have to haul the removed plant material out…! If interested please email invasiveplants@theweaselhead.com

INVASIVE PLANT PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES 2021 (all tools and equipment provided):

Weeding workshops: Join our workshops every second Sunday 9 – 12.30am (still on hold)

Join Youth Volunteers on Sundays to dig up invasive shrubs and control the spread of other unwanted species. Exact work depends on the season, but be prepared to work off-trail, sometimes in thick undergrowth. Youth 12 and over welcome. Registration not required but we advise letting us know if you plan to come in case of cancellation (eg due to weather).

Or organise your own group to come and help – and book a date and time that suits you.

If you would like to book a weeding workshop for a group or need more information about what’s involved in volunteering – let us know. Contact invasiveplants@theweaselhead.com or call Sarah on 403 200 7738. Groups sizes from 6 to 20 people welcome.

Volunteers are met by the grey shed  in the north west corner of the Weaselhead Parking Lot on 66th Ave. and 37th St SW. Please wear long pants (not leggings if possible – mosquitos can bite right through these!), bring a long-sleeved top, and wear hiking boots or sturdy trainers.
