How Can You Help?
We have volunteer opportunities that are great for all ages and time frames.
Artist Boat is currently recruiting passionate individuals who will volunteer to assist in land management activities at the Coastal Heritage Preserve. These activities may include, but aren’t limited to: utilizing chainsaws and other powered tools to eliminate trees and woody shrubs from 12 miles of fenceline, operating a Zero Point mower to maintain over 6 miles of trail, regular landscaping and maintenance of 4 sites on the Preserve and Headquarters. If you have a skillset that would lend itself to our needs, please contact Greg Hall, the Habitat and Stewardship Program Manager to get involved!
Volunteer at the Preserve
Open workdays will be schedule and announced two days each month, one Thursday and one Saturday. The Open Workdays will generally consist of landscaping and beautification activities at one of the Public, or Education sites on the Preserve. To RSVP for an Open Workday please first see available dates (these will be advertised via the Artist Boat Facebook page), and then RSVP for the date you select with Greg Hall, the Habitat and Stewardship Program Manager.
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 the Education Program Manager.
Want to volunteer but find the A/C more to your liking? Contact our Executive Assistant 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.
