Volunteer positions or just helping out are now available within the BC Marine Trails Network Association. The volunteering may be a couple hours helping out at a Paddlefest booth this year or completing site condition reports or site assessments reports during a summer trip. Volunteering is a great way to give back.
Site Condition Reporting
When you are paddling and visiting sites send us a SCR—that is, a report on the condition of a site(s). We have both a fillable pdf form that you need to save and send to our stewardship director (e-mail on form) or we have an online form that is sent automatically to the stewardship director. Please visit this page for online forms and information: https://www.bcmarinetrails.org/how-to-help/stewardship
Salish Sea Marine Trail Event Volunteers
BC Marine Trails requires a technically minded person to learn and then administer the membership process of the BC Marine Trails Network Association through the website administration system using Membership Pro on a Joomla platform.
The BC Marine Trails Network Association has several events each year and requires someone to set up and coordinate these events by managing equipment such as tents and the volunteers involved. The event coordinator should also pick and choose the events and put together an outreach strategy for the BCMTNA in terms of public events and public profile.

Marine Trail Field Survey
If you, your group or your paddling club is planning a trip in 2017 you might consider Marine Trail Field Surveys for the BC Marine Trails with our Marine Trail Field Survey form. Essentially, we are looking to survey sites in remote areas that have NOT been surveyed or have very little information.
- We will send you a list of sites that need to be checked.
- Examine the site assessment form and take one or more copies to fill out, returning them to the BCMTNA data coordinator when done.
