Shorebird Stewardship Program – Volunteers Needed
The Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program is looking for volunteers! The Red Knots are back and soon beach-nesting shorebirds will be breeding. This Stewardship Program aims to protect and conserve Kiawah’s shorebirds by teaching beachgoers about the birds that they share the beach with.
Volunteers are positioned on the beach to share fun facts about the birds and why it is important to conserve and protect them. Time commitments are flexible (2-hour shifts) from now through July and training is provided. New volunteers need to attend one classroom training session that will be held at the Municipal Center (4475 Betsy Kerrison Pkwy) on Wednesday, March 20 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Returning volunteers are encouraged to attend as well.
Interested parties can RSVP by calling Aaron Given at (843) 768-9166 or via email. If you wish to participate but are unable to attend, please let us know and we will try to arrange an on-the-job training with an experienced steward.
