Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society

The mission of the Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society (NS3) is to inspire children and develop their interest in science and sustainability through hands-on learning. Key to this mission is conducting community outreach through our educational programs, and building an interactive Science Centre for the central Vancouver Island region – a destination attraction where families, kids, retirees, teachers, schools and tourists will have fun playing in hands-on exhibits, questioning how things work, discovering the science behind sustainability practices, and imagining the wonders of the natural world.

Things we do:

  • advocacy
  • citizen science project(s)
  • environmental education
  • environmental restoration
  • nature walks
  • stewardship

We're looking for volunteers in these areas:

  • Regular volunteers
  • Occasional volunteers
