A Habitat Healer is someone who is learning to be an effective caretaker for the living world that surrounds them. They participate in nature-based workshops and have had on-the-ground training to apply what they have learned in their community.
Habitat Healers are encouraged to work towards minimum hours of voluntary service activity and engagement. As a Habitat Healer gains hours they will collect Service Seeds and, in turn, reach different Service Seed levels. To qualify to collect Service Seeds, a Habitat Healer must have established recent volunteer hours with the Fraser Valley Conservancy and have submitted the Service Seed pledge.
Track Service Seeds – Get Rewards
Service Seed Levels and Awards are given to Habitat Healers who have exhibited minimum amounts of hours dedicated to learning about and taking part in stewardship actions within their community. At each milestone of their journey, they will be recognized for their achievements.
We’re partnering with local businesses to show appreciation to our dedicated volunteer teams who work tirelessly to enact nature-based solutions to climate change in their everyday lives. If you’re interested in reaching a new target audience and aligning your brand to social and environmental responsibility, we’d love to have you as a sponsor!
Your time, talents, and energy!
There is no monetary cost to joining, all workshops are completely free. We provide the gear you need during our on-the-ground training sessions.
We plan to have one meeting a month that will last approximately two to four hours. These meetings will include activities like: classroom workshops, field trips, and on-the-ground training.
The core workshops and training sessions will last approximately six months. After that, we will establish a permanent team who is willing to look after the habitat for years to come. The Fraser Valley Conservancy and Step to It Program will continue to support community leaders.
Yes, we are all ears when it comes to hearing about areas in our communities that would benefit from more care, attention, and vegetation. However, we will be focusing on public spaces, so if you know of a park that could use some help, please let us know!
The Fraser Valley Conservancy (FVC) has opportunities for people of all ages and abilities! Whether you want to help us at special events, count frogs that navigate through toad tunnels, or take part in planting projects, go to our FVC Volunteer Opportunities page to learn more.
Check out our Events page to learn about upcoming workshops and planting projects you can take part in!
Thank you for wanting to support your local Habitat Healers team!
Removing invasive species, cleaning up garbage and planting native trees and shrubs is hard work! We are always looking for lunch, snack and coffee/tea contributions for our volunteers to keep their energy up and spirits high! If you want to donate a small appreciation gift for our year end wrap up party to give to our Habitat Healers team to say “thank you” for their hard work within the community, that is also appreciated and welcome.
Please email Patricia, the FVC’s Coordinator of Volunteers for more information or if you would like to give a cash donation to your local Habitat Healers team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Habitat Healers and the Step to It Program is grateful for support from these partner organizations. Thank you.
