Have the wilderness experience of your life by helping aboriginal people succeed, and by learning about and participating in traditional native culture. It's an amazing feeling helping others, whether you help clear an ancient trail, build a community garden in a native community, or help with one of our famous hot springs renovation projects. Many volunteers return again and again because the experience makes you feel so good about yourself. Each trip is unique and each experience makes you feel like you are making a positive change in the world and are having new rewarding and enriching experiences. Spend your days working in the wilderness and your nights soaking in the most beautiful hot springs in the world. Interested? Read on!
This time we will be putting the final touches on a couple of different First Nation community gardens. This includes transplanting seedlings, spreading new seeds, building some fences and maybe even switching chickens around between communities. We will spend several hours working each day but will have plenty of time to soak in the T'sek (Skookumchuck or St.Agnes Wells) Hot Springs 44km on a logging road past Pemberton. If the group is big enough we may even do some work on the old Gold Rush Trail.
We have some vehicles but most likely will need more. Vehicles should have decent clearance and good tires. All participants are responsible to bring their own camping gear, food, and clothes suitable to work. Fuel costs will be shared between all participants.
This time we will be leaving in the afternoon to make it easier for people to attend our trips.
