NOTE TO NEW AND RETURNING MEMBERS: Volunteers are behind all of MVFN’s activities and accomplishments. There is a role for everyone—large or small, tasks to suit all. If you would like to help out, please contact an MVFN board or committee member about current projects. Your involvement is of great value to the club! For example, you might share natural history knowledge by leading an outing, or write a short article describing an MVFN outing or lecture. Help is also needed during lecture season with lecture AV equipment, assisting with set-up, refreshments etc. and at special events such as Kintail Country Christmas and our annual Spring Gathering.
Look for specific volunteer opportunities posted under About: Volunteer. Opportunities to participate in citizen science projects also arise and will be posted here on the website under PROTECT. In many cases when volunteer opportunities arise a notice about it will go out to you on the MVFN members e-mail network.
