Volunteer Milestones and Rewards

Volunteer Milestones reward and recognize our volunteers for all their hard work and dedication to this program, and their overall progress towards creating a healthy habitat for all. As volunteers reach each milestone, they receive a letter of accomplishment from the Invasive Species Council of BC as well as their reward.

1) Adopt a local green space or outdoor area;

2) Help develop online resources that reduce the spread of invasive species such as social media content or factsheet;

3) Share your environment or invasive species story through an ISCBC blog post;

4) Turn your tech skills into service! Help arrange a webinar for your church, design invasive species posters, or produce educational videos.

5) Conduct or support an outreach or recruitment event to grow the ISCBC youth team and your network;

6) Arrange or support an online team event or Dialogue Session to share your knowledge and celebrate your successes;
