Branch Out: Community Stewardship Program

Community Stewardship Program

The Branch Out Community Stewardship Program seeks to provide space for motivated individuals to enhance their public spaces. Esquimalt Parks will provide access to tools and information to minimize the impact of invasive species in our natural areas and forests.


This program is designed for you to choose your volunteer experience.  Once accepted as an approved volunteer, you can spend as much time as you'd like volunteering in the area you are most interested in.


We are excited to accept volunteers of all ages or abilities, however you must meet a few criteria before getting started.  Self-guided volunteers must:

  • complete an orientation with Township staff
  • be able to work outdoors or on uneven terrain
  • have a level of physical fitness required to do the position
  • work only in approved areas

You choose how long and how often you volunteer.  All materials and training will be provided!


Sign up for a scheduled orientation HERE.
