Between 15 and 18? Know Someone Who Is?
Young people often ask us, “How can I get involved and what can I do to help the planet?” When you are aged 15 to 18, the answer is simple: become part of the CWF WILD Outside program, funded by the Government of Canada under the Canada Service Corps program.
WILD Outside is a national conservation-based youth leadership program. By participating in this immersive program, young Canadians will experience opportunities for personal growth while developing and encouraging their own “conservation ethic.” You are never too young to make a difference!
WILD Outside is in Calgary, Charlottetown, Halifax and Toronto. Beginning April 2020, you can also join in Edmonton, Kitchener, Moncton, Montreal, Ottawa, Regina, Saskatoon, St. John’s, Vancouver and Winnipeg!
We are thrilled to announce that the CWF Bioblitz Program is officially award-winning! CWF will receive an award from the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) at an upcoming gala event in Hamilton, ON. The award is in recognition of our efforts in organizing the 2019 Bioblitz event at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, an NPCA property located west of St. Catharines. The event was the first-ever Bioblitz conducted on site, it included releasing hundreds of Monarchs and tracking biodiversity using the iNaturalist app. Congrats to everyone involved!
A Bioblitz is like taking a “nature selfie” by cataloguing species within a particular area. With the help of Canadians like you, we hope to catalogue as much of Canada as possible so that we can make informed decisions about our land use, environmental policies and wildlife.
Help Us Help Pollinators: Your Gift Will Be Triple Matched in March!
Imagine a world without butterflies, bees and other pollinators. I’m sure you cannot, and neither can the team here at the Canadian Wildlife Federation. That’s why we started a small pilot project in 2019, showing large companies and local governments how planting pollinator meadows along hydro corridors helps to reduce the need for regular mowing and creates healthy habitat and essential migration paths for butterflies and other pollinators.
Now, we want to take the next step and expand the project to further help our pollinators and give them the best possible chance at survival. Will you help us help them?
If you donate to the Canadian Wildlife Federation between March 1st and 31st, your incredibly generous gift will be TRIPLE MATCHED by our good friends at Medallion Plants. Yes, tripled! With your help, we can make a difference for pollinators and other struggling species.
