Community Wildlife Monitoring Program
Do you live near a wetland? Do you enjoy watching birds or listening for frogs? Do you live in the Bay of Quinte watershed? If the answer is, yes, then the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan and Quinte Conservation can use your help this spring in monitoring certain species of wildlife.
Watershed Watch Program
The Watershed Watch Program is an initiative of Quinte Conservation that encourages volunteers to help collect valuable weather information. Volunteers throughout our watershed collect rain data and submit their findings to Quinte Conservation. The information is very useful because it helps Quinte Conservation staff understand how much water is in our system and what is happening to the water.
Photography and Creating Videos
Quinte Conservation is looking to expand the videos available on our YouTube Channel and our photo library of our local conservation areas and wildlife. This is an ideal volunteer opportunity for the amateur photographer or videographer. It is also suitable for high school students looking to complete their volunteer hours.
Stream of Dreams
The Stream of Dreams Program can always use volunteers to cut wooden fish, help install murals, fundraise, and acquire donations of materials.
Yellow Fish Road
Yellow Fish Road is a nation-wide environmental education program designed and managed by Trout Unlimited Canada. The Yellow Fish Road program’s goal is to help Canadians understand that storm drains are the doorways to our rivers, lakes and streams. Preventing pollutants from
entering our storm drains is critical to protecting and improving water quality and aquatic habitat.
If your group is interested in participating in the Yellow Fish Road program and you are in the Moira, Napanee or Prince Edward Watersheds you can contact Quinte Conservation to book a date to paint storm drains in your municipality. Quinte Conservation will work with local municipalities to schedule the Yellow Fish Road programs.
