Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society



Volunteers Needed !!

The following is a list of activities that we are currently seeking volunteers to help us out with.  If you are interested in an activity then please contact the organizer directly. 

Communications Director

Riparian Maintenance

Our Society thrives on the many hours our volunteers contribute to attaining its goals.  In fact in the last membership year, volunteers contributed over 2,154 hours of effort - and that membership year was only 9 months long (due to a change in membership year-end)!

Thanks for checking!  Thanks for helping!

Riparian Maintenance

Time and Duration: spring/summer/fall, as little or as much as you wish

This activity involves doing maintenance in riparian areas that we have rehabilitated under the Cowichan Shoreline Stewardship Project.  Typical activities involve removal of invasive plants (e.g. blackberry) and watering or fertilizing of native plants.  All sites are local to Lake Cowichan, you may have to arrange your own transportation however we do encourage car pooling.
