Goldstream Nature House and RLC Park Services

The Goldstream Nature House is located in Goldstream Provincial Park on South Vancouver Island.  It has a rich history of offering nature-based education programs for all ages.  The Goldstream Nature House operates without government funding, using a combination of fundraising, donations, community sponsors and partnerships to keep its doors open. RLC Park Services believes that nature experiences are vital to the health of our children and is committed to keeping these opportunities available to all children.  Program fees go directly back into the Nature House to cover costs of staffing and operating the facility.

Volunteers are vital to the operations of the park and the Goldstream Nature House, which wouldn’t run without their assistance and dedication.  Volunteering here at the park requires time and commitment, but it is one of the most rewarding things you can do with your spare time!  Volunteers can expect to gain extensive knowledge and experience with local plant and animal species, experience in environmental education, and familiarity with park and nature house operations.  

Volunteer roles can include, but are not limited to:

1. Nature House and bookstore
