Volunteering with TFN
Volunteering is a challenging and rewarding element of being involved with a not-for-profit association. Becoming a volunteer gives people the opportunity to make friends, to learn new skills and to be involved in the planning and management of associations.
The Toronto Field Naturalists Volunteer Program provides a corps of well-informed volunteers who stimulate public interest in and understanding of nature for the benefit of the public through such activities as maintaining a website, leading walks, organizing lectures, publishing newsletters, participating in discussion of natural heritage issues and conducting outreach activities. These volunteers also protect and preserve natural heritage for the benefit of the public in the City of Toronto.
