Share your specialized skills

Do you have a skill you would like to share with us, such as gardening, photography, video, graphic design, event planning, fundraising, or proposal/grant writing? Are you a filmmaker, musician, writer, business owner, lawyer or accountant who would like to help us out pro bono? Let us know!


Join a committee

A lot of our work is done through our committees (e.g. Community Garden Committees, Newsletter Committee) and our Board of Directors.  For information on when they meet, what they work on, and how to get involved, please  contact us.


Join our Board of Directors

The Western Environment Centre is governed by a volunteer board of directors. For more information on our board and how to apply to become a board member, please visit our  staff and board page or contact us.


Become an advisor

The WEC is often asked to comment on current environmental issues. In order to ensure we have a balanced and educated view, we sometimes consult with outside professionals and researchers (in forestry, conservation, wildlife, climate change, waste management, etc.). If you would like to offer your voice and opinion, we would love to hear from you!
