Get Involved

Since its inception, the Thetis Island Nature Conservancy has received enormous support from Thetis Islanders and visitors in the form of donations of time and money to support programming, memberships, attendance at events and workshops, volunteer assistance with citizen science, trail building, and restorations, and in-kind support such as accommodation for summer students and guest speakers, equipment, and meal preparation for workshops to name only a few. The Nature House and our office at The Portal is generously provided in-kind by the Porter family. We have formed lasting mutually supportive relationships with multiple organizations. Please see a comprehensive list towards the bottom of this page.

A huge nature-sized thank you to all our supporters, volunteers, and participants.

Membership is a way of showing your support and helps you connect with other like-minded community members. Members elect our board of directors, and fees help support the range of stewardship and nature education activities ThINC is engaged in.
