Celebrating DUC Volunteers

A force for conservation in your community

Volunteer Champions

Across the country, passionate people are banding together to create a healthier world.

They’re conserving Canada’s wetlands to protect our water, our wildlife and our future. These people are DUC volunteers…and they’re a force for conservation in your community.

DUC appreciates and values every one of our volunteers. They run hundreds of fundraising events, pitch in at local conservation project sites, help with educational programs and even volunteer at our offices. Volunteers give life to our conservation work.
