to join our Volunteer Network and help us with projects such as:
King Tide Photo Initiative (Nov. - Jan.): Photograph specific sites along the Humboldt Bay shoreline during the highest tides of the year to document areas vulnerable to sea level rise and erosion.
Coastal Cleanups: Earth Day (April) and Coastal Cleanup Day (Sept.) events to remove trash from beaches and riverbanks, keeping it out of the bay and ocean.
Bridge Brigade - Take a bite out of grime with our regular cleanups of the Samoa Bridge landings, all equipment provided!
Bay Tour Docent Team - Become a docent for Bay Explorations tours. In 2014, we offer three types of tours: kayak/canoe, motor boat, and walking tours of the Hikshari Trail.
Fundraising events - Help plan benefit events and/or volunteer at the event.
Outreach Team - Represent Baykeeper at community events such as Godwit Days (April) and the North Country Fair (September).
Office Assistance - Occasional envelope stuffing sessions, database entry, etc.
Our Citizen Water Monitoring Program is currently searching for funding, and will need volunteers to monitor water quality when we secure funding.
Research on policy issues is always a big need, as is grant writing. Experience required.
