What Makes People Want To Volunteer For Nature?

This is a short storytelling video that I produced from a few clips filmed during a broll footage assignment for The Nature Conservancy of Canada near Barrie, Ontario.

This particular video is an example of how environmental visual storytelling can be told in short-form videos as well. The actual broll assignment spanned almost four hours and included providing NCC with a large bank of footage for its video library. From that large bank of clips, I was able to create this short conservation storytelling video about the ‘why’ behind people volunteering for causes such as this invasive species removal event in a forest known as Happy Valley.

NCC directly protects and cares for Canada’s most vulnerable natural areas and the plants and animals they sustain. Since 1962, NCC and its partners have helped to conserve 14 million hectares (35 million acres) of ecologically significant land nationwide.

Garlic mustard is one of Ontario’s most aggressive forest invaders, and threatens biodiversity. Garlic mustard grows in a wide range of habitats and spread quickly along roadsides, trails, and fence lines. Seeds fall close to the parent plants and are rarely dispersed by wind or water. The main pathway for seed spread over long distances is through humans and pets. Within 5-7 years, garlic mustard can enter, establish itself, and become the dominant plant in the forest understory, choking out the growth of native plants.
