RV Volunteer Caretakers at High Island

RV Volunteer Caretakers at High Island

High Island 

Starting October 2020, 6-9 month commitment

This is a remote volunteer opportunity.

We are looking for Volunteer Caretakers who can park their RV at our Coastal Operations Center (Coop) and Volunteer Campground at High Island starting in September 2020. The Coop features RV hookups, showers, and an outdoor picnic pavilion to make your volunteer experience convenient and comfortable.  Take advantage of this opportunity to camp in exchange for 30 hours of service per week conducting tasks such as monitoring sanctuaries, greeting visitors and selling day passes, equipment maintenance, grounds keeping,  sharing information about our bird sanctuaries and more! This is the inaugural year for our RV Volunteer program, so you will also play a part in helping us hone and craft this opportunity for future volunteers.

We are looking for volunteers with knowledge of birding (do not need to be experts, but must be interested in learning more about birding and sharing that information with the public), as well as skills in basic home maintenance. For more information about this volunteer opportunity please email Lauren Miheli at  and tell us a bit about yourself.
