Whether you're interested in exploring the magnificent natural areas in our region, or you're a "people person" with keen planning and organization skills, the Head-of-the-Lake Land Trust program has a volunteer position with your name on it.

Several kinds of volunteer opportunities with the HLT program are available, including caring for the nature sanctuaries, helping with special events, fundraising, and communications.  Or tell us about your ideas or skills and we can work with you to create ways for you to help.

That means it's time to make some changes!
Why not start with things we can easily control, like our own behaviour. Driving along Cootes?
