Share your love of art, community, and nature

The Robert Bateman Centre is seeking enthusiastic, people-oriented individuals to join our dedicated team of volunteers who share an interest in introducing others to the inspirational world of Robert Bateman. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other likeminded people, and to help others discover the magic of nature.

Please consider joining us if you are looking to be a part of an organization that:
  • Believes the visitor experience is paramount
  • Fosters respect for the natural world in which we live
  • Stands for creativity, innovation and ongoing learning
  • Listens and contributes to our communities
  • Is committed to the highest professional and ethical standards

We have several opportunities where you can contribute – or get in touch and tell us what you had in mind!
  • Docents lend their acquired knowledge of Robert Bateman, his art, and his inspirations to visitors to the Robert Bateman Centre.
  • Shop volunteers introduce our customers to a wide array of locally made work from a very talented pool of artists.
  • Public programming volunteers assist our staff in the planning and execution of our many public programs geared to fostering a love of nature.

What type of training does a volunteer need?

All we ask is you to bring your enthusiasm for people, nature, or art and we will do the rest.
