Help students discover and explore estuary ecology at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center.
Lab Program Volunteers are asked to commit to specific dates as they become available. Volunteers are called as soon as dates are available. Volunteers are not required to assist with a specific number per year. Volunteers are provided with as much notice as possible. Volunteers have the ability to choose from available dates as they are scheduled and therefore, are able to work around their own schedule. Additional dates may become available on short notice and will also be offered to volunteers.
Program Volunteers must have the following qualifications.
Training & Benefits
Volunteers will receive specific training on how to assist with this program. There are many benefits to becoming an *active volunteer at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, including seasonal volunteer appreciation trips, the annual volunteer dinner, skill and resume development, meeting new people, and let's not forget spending time in a natural place (to mention just a few). *Please note: Active volunteer status is reached when you volunteer at least 20 hours a year.
First, fill out a volunteer interest form and return it to the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center located at 700 Otter Point Road, Abingdon, MD 21009 or by fax at 410-612-0819. Second, you will be contacted to set up an interview by the Volunteer Coordinator. The interview is designed to help determine which volunteer opportunities will best suit both your needs and the current openings at the Estuary Center. Please remember the needs of our volunteer programs change so we may not always have openings in all program areas.
