Volunteers survey invasive species on the Thompson Island dock.
Volunteer Citizen Scientists help us understand the flora and fauna that live and breed on the islands and the environmental factors that influence them. Join us on any Stewardship Saturday program to get involved. Sign up for Stewardship & Science updates by joining our park community.

efforts. You can learn more about bird watching at .
Help with Early Pest Detection
by surveying, monitoring, and responding to invasive plants, animals and insects.
Participate in the Phenology Monitoring Study
to establish baseline data that will allow scientists to assess the effects of climate change on island plants and habitats over time.
