Carbon Capture Activity Volunteers, Bruce Grey Forest Festival 2012


You can help!

The success of the Festival will depend on the support we receive from the 100+ secondary school students, industry professionals and community volunteers we will need to make this event possible.

As a volunteer at the Festival, you will help facilitate the fun and learning at an interactive activity focusing on the importance of trees, forests and forestry. Working with groups of students, you will help them "leaf" into knowledge and perhaps you will discover a few interesting facts about trees too!!

All it takes is the minimum of a one day committment and you can enjoy the satisfaction of helping to educate our students about the forests and the environment. We like to show our appreciation to our volunteers by providing you with:

Hands-On Training
Recognition Festival T-Shirt
Complimentary Lunch
