Parks Interpretive Experience volunteer program

The City of Calgary Parks is looking for outgoing, park-loving volunteers who are passionate about nature and love to tell a good story. View the volunteer description.

Now recruiting volunteer interpreters for three of our city parks: Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, Prince's Island Park and Carburn Park

What is the Park Interpretive Experience?

Nose Hill Park
Nose Hill Park
 

The Parks Interpretive Experience (PIE) program places volunteer interpreters in our city parks to engage park users in activities and conversations that help illustrate and interpret these special landscapes.

Volunteer Interpreters use stories, artifacts and short demonstrations to spark curiosity, deliver important management messages, and create a memorable visitor experience. Interpreters answer questions about resident plants and animals, as well as the cultural history of the area, and can direct visitors to other park resources and information.

How can I get involved?

Volunteers receive training in customer service, environmental and natural history topics, and interpretation skills; then commit a minimum of six shifts per season, from June to October.
