Get Involved

Get your hands dirty to understand what truly inspires Squamish CAN! Whether you prefer to use your hands or your head, you will find a warm welcome. Are you interested in food/ gardening, waste reduction/ recycling or energy and transportation - or all of the above? 

Here are some ideas on the best ways to get involved.

Activities

Try your hand at a variety of activities to help our current projects. Anyone can volunteer with Squamish CAN.

Help out around the community garden. Reduce your carbon footprint. Attend a meeting. Speak to the public. Educate your neighbours.

Do you have any special skills, knowledge, or tools? Tell us what you can do!

 

Also, check out our Event Calendar for upcoming events - most of our events are run by volunteers and we are always looking for people to help with upcoming events.
