Pinckney Island Programs and Accessibility Project
Our FREE programs include shuttle tours for people that are accessibility challenged.Volunteers are needed to assist the Friends and Refuge staff improve visitors experiences at Pinckney Island NWR, fulfilling the promise of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry grant.
As our volunteer base expands we will be able to increase the number of tours and services we provide.
Please 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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. Contact Kathy (email@example.com)
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. Contact John (firstname.lastname@example.org)
