WELCOME TO SURREY'S GREEN TIMBERS URBAN FOREST

Are you ready for a new challenge? Do you like nature, trees, and -- most importantly -- people? The Green Timbers Heritage Society is looking for a few people able to take this institution (est. 1989) to the next level with fresh thinking, a positive attitude and an understanding of how to work with volunteers and branches of City government. Ideal for retired people with an interest in preserving natural areas. 

We have several positions opening up in November, 2014:

1.  President: as chair of the organization you will be responsible for the overall direction of the society, be familiar with the history and challenges facing this unique urban forested area, and be willing and able to communicate effectively with different stakeholders. You should be comfortable with email, the phone and meeting people. Time commitment: up to 5 hours a week.

2.  Treasurer: The Green Timbers Heritage Society is involved in the administration of different projects, including the Surrey Natural Areas Partnership (SNAP). The budget is over $150,000. You will be responsible for writing cheques, demanding receipts and keeping the books in order. It helps if you know which side of the ledger credits and debits are. Time commitment: up to 5 hours a month.

3.  Directors-at-large: We're also looking for people to help with other projects. Time commitment: whatever you can give.

If you're interested in education and preserving and enhancing the Green Timbers Urban Forest please send an email to GreenTimbersSociety@gmail.com.
