How about volunteering at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve?  We offer many volunteer opportunities from receiving guests at the interpretive centre to gardening, from providing administrative assistance to acting as an environmental educator.  Are you an avid birder?  Do you have a background in education? Are you looking for an opportunity to get out of the house and socialize while being a steward for wetland habitat and serving your community?
