Volunteer Opportunities:

Pancake Breakfast, Open House & AGM - July 27
Be a part of the behind the scenes action at the Annual General Meeting. Some volunteer responsibilities could include helping prepare the pancake breakfast, setting up and taking down at the venue, or running the registration table.

Mussel Monitoring
Looking for lakeside residents to help keep Pigeon Lake clear of invasive species. This citizen science project requires volunteers to place a PVC pipe beneath their dock or pier, check it monthly for signs of invasive mussels, and report back to PLWA staff.  In addition, volunteers are to keep an eye out for the presence of invasive aquatic plants.

Community Weeding Days
Join PLWA staff in this community based program to help clean up and eradicate invasive species and nuisance/noxious weeds near the lake. Get the chance to learn more about plants and healthy lawn practices while getting your hands dirty.

Nature Walks
Looking for nature enthusiasts to help lead guided walks in natural areas around the watershed. Knowledge of local plants and animals is preferred.
