Learn about volunteering at Rookery Bay

Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and Friends of Rookery Bay are looking for volunteers to help with a number of projects and programs.

Docents are needed to help with educational and school programs.

College and high-school students are welcome to sign up for summer duties, many related to children’s activities.

Those who can help with event planning are welcome, as are those who would like to greet visitors to the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center or assist shoppers in the center’s nature store.

Hands-on helpers are also needed for fish feeding, aquarium and touch-tank maintenance and resource management.

If you are interested in learning more, a volunteer orientation session is set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday, April 27, at the learning center, 300 Tower Road. For more information, email Donna Young, visitor services and volunteer coordinator, at donna.young@dep.state.fl.us. ¦
