Here's a list of volunteer needs and descriptions we can always use help with:

  • Brazilian pepper/invasive plant eradication - help coordinate efforts with the Marine Resources Council and the Pelican Island Audubon Society to control invasive plants and restore native habitat.
  • Merchandising - we participate in various public events throughout the year and selling items helps us raise funds to support out efforts. This job includes maintaining our inventory, advising when items need to be reordered, searching for and recommending new items that would be appropriate for us to consider adding to our sales.
  • Newsletter/Website Editor - getting the word out through our newsletter and website.
  • St. Sebastian River Research Project - we have undertaken a project to search out and be a resource for information about our river and what impacts it. Please see the Library/Newsletters page of our website for more details.
  • St. Sebastian River Walking Tours - help lead walking tours on the various trails around the St. Sebastian River. There are many education and outreach opportunities available, and any help is appreciated.
