Ambassadors are a passionate group of dedicated volunteers who help spread awareness of The Couchiching Conservancy and the work we do. They attend community events with display booths, call supporters to invite them to events, deliver Passport to Nature booklets, and more!
As an ambassador, you have the ability to share your passion for a healthy environment with others, meet like-minded people who share the same vision, and help expand the land trust movement in your region. By working together, ambassadors help us build a community of supporters to drive change at a local level.
On this page you will find all the resources you need as an Ambassador. If you have any questions or there are other documents you would like us to include, please email Joelle at email@example.com.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
Volunteering as an Ambassador During the Pandemic
Your safety and the safety of our community is very important to us. As a result, we are following all regulations as outlined by the Provincial Government. Due to the current restrictions, ambassadors will not be attending public events until further notice.
Your role as an ambassador is critical to building a community of supporters by finding those individuals who love and care for nature. Even though you cannot attend public events, there are other ways you can share your love for land conservation. These jobs include:
Helping to host Passport to Nature webinars
Trail engagement (become a Trail Ambassador)
Garbage clean ups at Nature Reserves
Phone calls to supporters

Trail Ambassadors are a team of volunteers or a volunteer who visit a Nature Reserve (with trails) once a month to pick up garbage, monitor the use of the trails, and engage trail users on who we are and how they can help protect local wilderness!*

* Due to the pandemic, we are not asking you to chat with trail users unless you feel comfortable doing so.
To limit the amount of fossil fuels used and to stick close to home, we ask that you choose to monitor a Nature Reserve that is closest to you. Please click on the Nature Reserve name above to read where the property is located, its trail maps, and more.
If you are interested in being a Trail Ambassador, please email Joelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
