As more people learn about the jewel that we have on Delaware’s Bayshore, we have more visitors. Many of these visitors are eager to learn about the region’s natural history. Volunteers are needed to serve as beach stewards to help visitors connect to the Bayshore.
Stewards are stationed at highly visited locations along Delaware’s Bayshore, to share their passion and knowledge about shorebirds, horseshoe crabs, and other Delaware Bay resources. They will also share tips for visiting the beaches appropriately and taking action for conservation.
- Serve for 2-8 hours per day, especially weekend days.
- Choose your favorite beach or ask for a recommendation.
- Primary role is visitor engagement, but stewards are also encouraged to participate in horseshoe crab rescue and resighting of banded birds.
- Help collect data to inform outreach activities.
A volunteer training will held in early spring. Location and date TBD.
