This is the first time I have heard of the Friends of Elk Island Society and I found out about it through looking for volunteer opportunities.
I have visited the park a few times. The most notable was with my college, NAIT where we had a tour of the bison and elk facilities for inoculating and sorting of livestock. I visit the Blackfoot recreational area often for bike rides.
I would like to volunteer especially as it pertains to controlling weeds whenever I am available. I am fairly young so I would appreciate gaining experience from other experienced individuals in a number of fields regarding parks, plants, and wildlife.
I am a board member for the FEIS and finishing my degree in Conservation Biology.
