We Love Our Volunteers!
While volunteering is a voluntary act of an individual or group freely giving time and labor for community service, we do offer community service hours, letters of recommendation and would consider work-study opportunities.
Our volunteers can get involved in many ways:
- Oyster Farming Install and Maintenance – This is normally from June to September and requires weekly maintenance, roughly 1 – 2 hours a week. No experience is necessary as we will train the right people. This is a wonderful opportunity for young volunteers to learn about the bays and get involved at a young age.
- FLUPSY – This is a more demanding and labor-intense responsibility. Each FLUPSY hosts between 100,000 – 150,000 oysters and as they grow the barrels become heavy. It’s a great opportunity for someone interested in the marine field. This normally starts in June and goes through October and requires weekly maintenance, 2 – 4 hours weekly.
- Awareness and Fundraising – This is a critical part of any nonprofit organization and we are always looking for individuals who are interested in getting involved in fundraising or bringing awareness to our project. If you are interested in hosting an event, we would love to talk with you. Please contact us to set up a call.
