Volunteers wanted!

Combine your passion for nature and your love for Tommy Thompson Park by becoming a volunteer! Volunteering at TTP is a rewarding way to share your enthusiasm for the environment and to spend time in Toronto's Urban Wilderness.

This year, we're expanding our volunteering program to include two positions: Weekend Park Ambassadors and Guided Walk Leaders.

Weekend Park Ambassadors are the friendly faces greeting visitors at the entrance. They have the diplomatic role of answering questions about TTP's history, ecosystems and, restoration activities as well as about the park's programs and policies. For more information about this unique volunteering experience, visit Toronto and Region Conservation's 'Get Involved' webpage.

Guided Walk Leaders are energetic individuals eager to share the beauty, perplexity and importance of Tommy Thompson Park. With moderate to advanced birding and/or nature interpretation skills, leaders accompany park visitors throughout the trails, pointing out birds and wildlife, habitat features and explaining ecosystem functions. For more information about becoming a guided walk leader and to apply, check out the position's full description here.

Selected volunteers will receive TRCA training and have the opportunity to refine skills such as public speaking, nature interpretation, and problem solving.  Both of these positions are offered from April 2, 2016 to November 12, 2016.  For more information about volunteering at TTP, email
