OCH Peninsula Monitors

Currently looking for volunteers who would like to survey and monitor coastal ecosystems for sensitive habitats and animal species. We are specifically looking for bird surveyors to look for the Threatened Western Snowy Plover and the Endangered California Least Tern at this time. No experience necessary, we will train you. After training, about 10-12 hours, volunteers will survey assigned beach segments (based on their preference and availability) within Orange County (from Huntington to San Clemente). Each shift runs between 2-3 hours to survey the entire segment and volunteers can choose to take a weekly shift, bi-weekly shift, or monthly depending on their availability. We do not have a minimum or maximum of required hours but we do ask that you volunteer at least once a month in one of our events, surveys, or other opportunities. As part of our monitoring program, monitors will also be asked to be prepared to speak to the public about the work that is being done and the background of the species as part of OC Habitats community outreach program as necessary.

In addition to our monitoring program, we are working on education and outreach where we give habitat tours and beach clean-ups as well as going to local OC schools to present information about the habitats in Orange County that students are surrounded by everyday.

As our organization grows, we are expanding our work effort in the field and our offerings to the community. We welcome individuals who would like to be a part of our program to conserve, promote, and educate the public about the importance of all the habitats in Orange County and how to protect them now and into the future.
