We seek motivated, friendly, and reliable volunteers to help us achieve our vision of championing the sustainability of barrier islands through environmental research and stewardship. Island visitors and residents are invited to join the Bald Head Island Conservancy’s team by becoming a volunteer!
Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age to volunteer on their own, although younger volunteers are welcome to assist alongside a parent or guardian. For teens and high school students, we are also able to offer externship and job shadowing opportunities on a case-by-case basis.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please fill out this volunteer interest form and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you with available options that best fit your skills and interests.
Outreach volunteers/docents interact with visitors as exhibit interpreters, facilitating hands-on activities and demonstrations and providing information at the Conservancy Welcome Table. Additionally, they represent the Conservancy at outreach events in Brunswick and New Hanover Counties
Event volunteers help with our 5 K Turtle Trots, we rely on our volunteers to help set up, break down, assist with timing and work at the packet pick up. We also welcome volunteers to help with our yearly Fishing School.
Retail Volunteers work alongside our team in our non-profit gift shop, Turtle Central
