Science & Resources Management Volunteer Opportunities

Creel Surveys: If you enjoy fishing, or want to learn more about fishing, this is the position for you. Help gather data on the fish in the park by stopping anglers and measuring and recording their catch. Creel surveys create important baseline data for measuring the health of our fish stock. This is a 4-hour position on Sunday and Tuesday afternoons. Apply

Marine Life Observation: This is an opportunity to use your snorkeling skills for a higher cause. Snorkelers can assist in monitoring the lobsters, urchins, fish, and other critters in the park. The data collected is then used to predict and protect the future of the park's sealife. This is a summer position on Wednesdays and Fridays, weather permitting. Apply
