Swan Lake Nature Ambassadors (SNAP) provide important visitor experience and monitoring support, including:
- Walking Swan Lake and Christmas Hill trails and welcoming visitors while offering educational information
- Monitoring and reporting any safety concerns to staff
- Tracking the number of visitors and various types of visitor interactions
- Sharing experiences and ideas to improve the visitor and volunteer experience
SNAP observations are a critical part of our site evaluation that is written into our Environment and Climate Change Canada grant 'Rare Species Recovery in an Urban Greenspace through Community Stewardship.'
