Pinckney Island NWR

Programs & Accessibility Services


Volunteers Needed

Our FREE programs have started including shuttle tours for people 

that are accessibility challenged.  

We need additional volunteers!   Can you give us some time? 


Volunteers are needed to assist the Friends and Refuge staff improve visitor experience at Pinckney Island NWR as a result of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry grant. 

The number of tours and services provided to the public will increase as we have more active Visitor Assistants volunteers.  If you love interacting with people, come out and help us share this very special refuge.  

Consider volunteering for one or more of the open positions.  If you are already a volunteer or a new volunteer, consider signing up for multiple positions.  Many position do not require a fixed schedule so you can select your days and time.


Visitor Assistants (VA)

VA’s are assigned to the visitor table during shuttle tours and eventually at other times to assist visitors.  VA’s check people in for tours and inform visitors about the refuge.  (It is enjoyable talking with refuge visitors.)  Contact Judy (

Group Tour Coordinator 

Group tours are for organizations of people with accessibility challenges.  You will introduce these groups to our shuttle tour and coordinate the tours. Also, ensure that the public is aware of our accessibility shuttle tours.  Kathy Reed leads this group.  Another volunteer is needed.  Contract Kathy (

Program Tours & Registrations Coordinators

Use our non-profit computer application, called Wild Apricot, to schedule tours, handle questions about tour registrations, send out Email notices, etc.  Some experience with computer application programs is needed and I will show you around Wild Apricot.  It is not hard but like all feature rich programs it is somewhat quirky.  You would also be responsible for program staffing using our online volunteer signup sheet and ensuring that volunteers are available for every program.   Contract John (
