How Can You Help?
We have volunteer opportunities that are great for all ages and time frames.
Artist Boat is currently recruiting passionate individuals to become Sea Citizen Volunteer Leaders and help with restoration work at the Coastal Heritage Preserve. Becoming a Sea Citizen will allow you to get involved with coastal habitat restoration, learn new skills, and protect the unique and fragile Coastal Heritage Preserve. If you’re interested in developing new skills and becoming a volunteer leader, please contact Kristen Simmons, Habitat and Stewardship Coordinator.
Come to a volunteer work day & make your mark on the Coastal Heritage Preserve! From 9am-12pm on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays and the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. If you’re interested in volunteering for one of these workdays, please RSVP to Kristen Simmons, Habitat and Stewardship Coordinator.
We are also recruiting Sea Citizens to help provide our Public Eco-Art Kayak Adventures to the Public! Work along side our Eco-Art Educators and assist with all aspects of the adventure program including kayaking, educating the public, and loading and unloading the adventure equipment. Please contact Amanda Rinehart, Education Program Manager to join our team.
Become a Bucket Brigade Interpreter
Bucket Brigade Volunteer Interpreters work closely with our Lead Interpreters to provide FREE Interpretive Tours of Galveston beaches to the public. If you love the beach and want to share your passion for the coastal ecosystem with visitors, we would love to have you join our team.
We have several volunteer training opportunities planned throughout the season. If you would like to volunteer but cannot attend one of the scheduled dates, please contact Kendall Guidroz, Bucket Brigade Coordinator.
Want to volunteer but find the A/C more to your liking? Contact Cathy Webster about opportunities to help in our office. From filing to mail outs and data management, there are plenty of ways to help the Artist Boat indoors.
Special Event Volunteer
Artist Boat has several special events throughout the year where we could use your help, including The World Oceans Day Festival, The Chicken Shack Strut, and our annual fundraiser Float the Boat.
