Program: Volunteer Mobilization and Support Project
Vital Sign: Environment
Total Grant: $10,000
Annually, the Peninsula Streams Society works with over 100 adult volunteers who contribute upwards of 2,000 hours on numerous stream and habitat restoration projects and environmental education programs on the Saanich Peninsula. Peninsula residents and the environment benefit from these immensely valuable contributions of time, skill and knowledge. Funding will enable the Society to improve its volunteer engagement program, which will result in more satisfied and engaged volunteers with greater volunteer retention, more opportunities for volunteers within the Society, more efficient use of staff time in organizing and evaluating volunteer contributions, and improved project and program support for environmental restoration work.
