We are always looking for extra hands....

Our Volunteer events are not just about earning service hours and helping out the community, but they give volunteers a chance to learn and gain skills they can apply to everyday life. Our volunteer events usually take place outdoors in beaches, parks and nature preserves! Volunteers will learn and discover hiking trails, wildlife, beaches, native plants and more!
