Reserve volunteers make an enormous difference in helping the Reserve staff complete their work. Volunteers help to fulfill the Reserve’s mission: “to promote informed management and stewardship of North Carolina’s estuarine and coastal habitats through research, education, and example.”
The Reserve has a diverse range of volunteer opportunities. From office assistants who help prepare for events and mailings to monitors who assist stewardship staff with protecting the land to research assistants who accompany research staff on monthly data collection trips, each volunteer brings his or her own unique skills to the task, making the Reserve programs stronger and more effective.
