Volunteer Opportunities: Ways you can Protect the Bay

It takes a community to protect our coastal waters. Share your skills—and learn new ones—by donating your time. Volunteering is a great way to show that you are a true Friend of Casco Bay.

More than 200 people volunteer their time with us every year, and these volunteers help us protect the Bay in a variety of ways, from cleaning up shorelines to stuffing envelopes. We hope you’ll consider partnering with us in our work to protect the Bay we all love and enjoy.
