Get Involved! Volunteer opportunities

Friends of the Bay volunteer opportunities come in every size and shape.

Projects take place on the bay, at the beach, in the office, at school and even up Mill Creek! Some last only a few hours, while others require more of a time commitment. You can volunteer yourself, with your friends, your family, neighbors, your company, school or community group.

We are looking for a small crew to help with a causeway cleanup along Cleft Road on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 from 9:30 a.m. to noon. All you need to bring is a pair of gloves.

If you have some weekday mornings free, we could use a few volunteers to help with measuring marsh grass for a future project. Waders helpful.

For all you “rainchasers” how about serving as an on-call volunteer to go out on the bay in the rain? We will be venturing out to perform some stormwater run-off reconnaissance.

If you want to help with an impromptu cleanup of South Street (where our office is located), let us know a day or two ahead of time, and our office manager Christopher may be able to go out with you for 20 to 30 minutes. We will provide gloves and trash bags.
