About

Volunteers needed to work on the Environmental Education Center's ecotone habitat restoration project. In the fall and winter, volunteers plant natives and in the spring and summer volunteers pull various invasive species to ensure that the native plants have a chance to thrive!

This specific volunteer opportunity is working with the restoration crew to help spray salt water from the bay to eliminate non-native plants. This is called salinization and is done with small pumps and basically a sprinkler system like in a garden. Help is needed setting up the setting up the sprinkler systems and running the pumps. No experience necessary. We will provide all the training necessary. The scenery is magnificent and the existing crew personable, fun loving, and looking forward to meeting you. Schedule would be Tuesdays 9:30-2:00 and possibly Thursdays. Flexible.
