Frequently, people offer to volunteer with our group. So, what do our volunteers do? In April of each year, we hold our organizational meeting. At that time, volunteers select a section of beach that is approximately 1 mile in length, and a day of the week, and commit to walking that section, on that day, at daybreak.
During turtle season (May 1 - August 31), our volunteers are usually the first ones on the beach each morning. We cover the the island from the south boundary of Ft. Clinch State Park to the north boundary of Amelia Island State Park on the south end. The entire length is approximately 9 miles.
If you are not an early riser, this is not the job for you. Daybreak is the best time to see turtle crawls clearly.
Throughout the summer months, regular volunteers may go on vacation. In that event, we need subs to fill in. Some people prefer to substitute, as they are able to see different sections of the beach on different days. Click the link below for more information on volunteering.
New volunteers for the 2016 meeting must attend our organizational meeting on April 13, 2016. For more information click here
