Virtual Volunteering
92% Satisfaction
Last year, more than 92% of United Nations volunteers and NFPs rated their virtual volunteering experience as ‘good’ or ‘excellent.’ Why is virtual volunteering so satisfying? And what is it, anyway?

How does volunteerism change you? That was the question we set out to answer this season as we traveled across Ontario, talking to volunteers from all walks of life about how doing good for others can do good for you too.
Volunteer awareness and fundraising
Youth Engagement
When volunteers raise awareness, what does it look like? Is it a tangible outcome that you can see? For most of us, no. Learn how to better engage youth in awareness and fundraising, by showing them the impact they make.

May 25th, 2012

The Nature Trust of New Brunswick's logo with a 25th Anniversary stamp2012 marks the 25th anniversary of The Nature Trust of New Brunswick, a provincial non-profit organization that preserves and manages 34 nature preserves across more than 5,000 acres of New Brunswick’s diverse habitats.  The Trust is celebrating 2012 as a year of partnership and collaboration and a year that focuses on youth engagement, and ultimately cultivating a new generation of New Brunswickers dedicated to land and nature conservation.

The Nature Trust is continuing to reconnect and engage New Brunswickers and the province’s many visitors with our precious natural landscapes through a number of innovative projects that                                                      will all be launched this year.

The New Brunswick Youth in Nature campaign (NBYNC) is the first by-youth, for-youth project in the history of the Trust. The campaign, designed and implemented by students of UNB’s Renaissance College will use art, music and skill-building exercises to give young people first-hand experience of some of the province’s wild spaces.

The Nature Trust is also partnering with the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design(NBCCD) and the UNB to produce and present Art of Nature / Nature of Art.  The project will showcase an exhibition of works created by students of NBCCD and the UNB BAA program, all inspired by the Trust’s Nature Preserves.

In April, the Trust launched Deep MapTM Eco.  The ‘app’ allows friends of the Trust to explore all 33 nature preserves through the ease and light footprint of their Smartphone, gain enhanced facts about flora and fauna, access location-based information such and trails, directions, and also how to become involved with Nature Trust.

This summer, the Nature Trust is hosting a series of events to commemorate their 25th anniversary.  For New Brunswickers and tourists alike these events are a great way to spice up your summer, either as an event volunteer or attendee.  Check out cool events like:

Caughey-Taylor Nature Preserve Work Days - May 26th & 27th

International Trails Day: Work/Hike at the Minister’s Face Nature Preserve – June 2nd
