Volunteer Partnerships

Every year volunteers donate hundreds of hours to the Seashore through popular programs including our MLK service weekend, our Natural Resource Intern Program, and our Alternative Spring Break program.

Alternative Spring Break. From March to May the Seashore is popular with those seeking warmth and a bit of hard work. During this time frame we accept work parties from up to three college and universities to spend their spring break giving back to the Park. If you are interested in how your school may participate in this program, please contact us at the information listed above.
