Event description

Description

Come learn about the opportunities for volunteering at the Upper Newport Bay such as kayak and outrigger tours, nature walks, Interpretive Center visitor services, habitat restoration (invasive plant removal & planting native species), leading tours with youth, judging science fairs, Earth Day, and other special events. Also we will explore the world of interpretation through customer service and how it relates to an open space setting.

This training is designed for adults (or teens 16 yrs+) who can commit to approximately 3 hours per month or 36 hours in their first 12 months of volunteering. This orientation/training event makes you eligible to volunteer in any OC Parks space, and is the site-specific training for the Upper Newport Bay.*

We are grateful for the enthusiasm and commitment of our roughly 200+ active volunteers. We look forward to having you join us.

Feel free to familiarize yourself with our programs and events by going to www.newportbay.org.

(Can't make it to this event but want to help out? Please email hilary.cunningham@newportbay.org to let our Volunteer Coordinator know you want to be notified when the next training date is available, which is about every 2 months).

* NOTE: Also, if you are considering attending our Naturalist Training Program from Sept-Dec, please note this class is a prerequisite prior to joining that training program.
