Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To preserve and share Florida's maritime heritage.
Come aboard as we undertake a voyage in time and tradition. Our port of call is somewhere in the past, but the harbor is a modern museum facility housed in the restored historic 1912 Schoolhouse located on the park like grounds of the Cortez Nature Preserve. Here you will find, displayed for your delight, pieces of the almost forgotten past. At the Florida Maritime Museum at Cortez you will find the Banks Shell collection, ship models, historic boats and a surprise butterfly garden. Families and community members will have the opportunity to build boats and learn boat related skills in the historic Pillsbury Boat Shop. Weekend workshops and ongoing programs will include building a Puddle Duck Racer complete with a sail rig and Skin on Frame kayaks.
