The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation hosts the Discovery Center, a collection of hands-on activities for families to learn about the wildlife, history and uses of the lagoon. We are open 7 days a week, and open to the public to come in and explore. We need volunteers on a weekly basis to help with day to day tasks such as guest interaction, office duties, filing, cleaning and maintenance, picking up after the kids, critter care and habitat cleaning, cleaning trash, making signage, and debris from our trails, amongst other duties. Volunteers are encouraged to have a can do and self-starter attitude. Must be in high school or older to volunteer.
