National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week is April 15 – April 21, 2018. It’s a week to celebrate the 13 million Canadians who volunteer their time and energy every year in a wide variety of ways. OLTA would like to say thank you to all of the volunteers across Ontario working hard to protect the land we all love. You are making a difference!

We are pleased to profile two very important OLTA volunteers during National Volunteer Week 2018 – see below.

But everyone is so busy these days and Kristie is no exception – so what keeps her motivated to keep volunteering? Read on and find out!
