Artist Boat is currently recruiting passionate individuals to become a Sea Citizen Volunteer and help with this restoration work. Becoming a Sea Citizen will allow you to get involved with coastal habitat restoration, learn new skills, and protect the unique and fragile Coastal Heritage Preserve. If you are interested in developing new skills, connecting with your community and other conservationists, and becoming a volunteer leader, please contact the Habitat and Stewardship Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through a year long grant, Artist Boat hopes to restore 9 acres of the 690 acre Coastal Heritage Preserve to its natural state. Restoration tasks include mowing, removing invasive species, “bumping up” seedlings, repairing the fence line around the property, and monitoring the site to ensure proper management of resident plants and animals at the Preserve.
One project: The Artist Boat Coastal Heritage Preserve has many areas of fence that badly need management, and volunteers will be utilized to clear brush and small trees from fence lines and other similar land management tasks. Volunteers with their own chainsaws and PPE are preferred for this specific task.
