Roll Up Your Sleeves and Volunteer With Green Organizations

Are you interested in transferring your concern for the environment into action? Then volunteer on the Paradise Coast, where your help is valued greatly.

All you need is a great attitude and a commitment to improve our environment. You’ll interact with like-minded, eco-friendly people, learn new skills and expand your knowledge about the environmental issues facing the Paradise Coast. Whether your time commitment is large or small, rest assured, it’ll be much appreciated and you’ll make a difference.

You can take advantage of volunteer opportunities that are eclectic, ranging from turtle counts and coastal cleanup at the beaches, to assisting at a wild animal rehabilitation center, to providing educational guided tours on the Gordon River aboard a small electric boat. There are even volunteer vacation packages at area hotels. Whatever your interest or concern, there’s somewhere you can help on the Paradise Coast.
