Volunteers must be prepared to walk 6 km in cold, dark and wet conditions while hunting for amphibians. Surveys will start after dark and last until the survey is complete, generally 1-3 hours. You will need weather appropriate gear (rain jacket, rain pants, boots or waterproof shoes, gloves).
Unfortunately, surveys cannot be planned in advance as they are completely dependent on rainy weather. If you are interested in volunteering for this project please e-mail us and you will be added to a contact list. When it looks like conditions are going to be good (i.e. wet) an e-mail will be sent out requesting volunteers for a specific day and time. Usually this e-mail is sent the day before or sometimes the day of a survey. Unfortunately, only a small group can help each night so only the first couple of people to respond can volunteer on a given night. However, there will be lots of opportunities!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to e-mail or call (604-625-0066).
