If you would like to help us in our mission to care for Lake Superior, we want to hear from you.

The Lake Superior Watershed Conservancy is looking to build a network of conservation-minded volunteers of all ages including youth and seniors. LSWC is looking for individuals who have a passion for the health of freshwater. We can provide you with unique and rewarding opportunities!

Featured Volunteer

Matthew Palarchio

Matthew Palarchio is a Naturalist and 3rd year student studying Earth Sciences at the University of Western Ontario. Some of the activities he enjoys in his spare time are hiking, nature photography, cross-country skiing, camping, canoeing and astronomy.

He’s already a dedicated volunteer at several conservation organizations, including Thames Talbot Land Trust, Ontario Nature, and Nature London. Because he spends his summers in Sault Ste Marie near Lake Superior, he reached out to LSWC with an offer to assist us with online content and monitoring our preserves.

Matthew hopes to pursue a career that benefits nature conservation across Ontario. Land conservation, community ecology and ecological restoration are of particular interest. He is aiming to help LSWC by forming connections with the conservation community, creating nature-related online content, assisting us with local initiatives in the Lake Superior region and, most importantly, help us develop a Youth Council to inform our work from his generation’s perspective.

We appreciate Matthew’s passion and communication skills to help us with our conservation mission!

How To Help

Protecting the greatest Lake on Earth means we all have a role to play in addressing the threatening elements of climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution, invasive species, and the diversion of water from the watershed.

We believe in the power of our collective effort to solve these challenges.
