Crafting Volunteer

Position description: 

Want to help save one of Canada’s most endangered species?

We are actively recruiting motivated individuals to join our volunteer team!

The Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Program (NSOBP) is a project managed by the British Columbia Conservation Foundation, a registered non-profit. Our Breeding Centre in Langley, BC is home to 25 northern spotted owls for which we provide care 365 days a year.

Our volunteer team provides much-needed support to staff and is crucial to the success of the Breeding Program. Crafting Volunteers help us by making high-quality owl themed crafts for us to offer as gift items by donation at various outreach events and on-site tours. Volunteers can either create their own crafts or receive training on how to create items that have been popular with our supporters.

Deliverables/Duties: 

This volunteer position is fairly casual. Let us know what your skills and ideas are, and we will work together to find a project that best suits our needs and your schedule! Please note that we are interested in high-quality handmade crafting items that can be produced in multiples. We are not in need of any paintings, photographs, or artwork at this time. Opportunities to attend our outreach events around the Lower Mainland will also be available if you are interested. You will be expected to log and report your volunteer hours on a regular basis, and stay in touch with us via email.

Qualifications: 
  • Must be at least 16 years of age.
  • Be reliable and answer emails promptly.
  • Have good attention to detail.
  • Communicate any additional volunteer interests. Let us know if you would like to help out in other ways!
  • Depending on where you are located, we may ask you to drop off your crafts at our Breeding Centre in Fort Langley. Please note that a car will be required to do so as we are not accessible by public transit.
