The parking space on the property will be close to where we will be working, however there will be some walking with tools required in order to get access to the space we will be removing the buckthorn from.

GUIDING NOTES: When volunteering for The Bruce Trail Conservancy you will be outside on the Trail or on one of The Bruce Trail Conservancy’s properties. Be prepared to be outside for several hours. Please note that there are no bathroom facilities provided. Remember to bring lots of water to drink as the volunteer work will be physical in nature. Some things you may encounter while volunteering are insects, mud, and poison ivy. You could compare the experience to being in a green gym, you will get sweaty and dirty.
