How to join us

Get involved! Volunteer Day is every Tuesday.

Everyone is welcome!
Volunteers support an important cause and are the backbone of the hatchery operation.

We suggest making arrangements with an existing member when you come to join us for the first time.  The gate is locked, and it is a long walk from the gate to the facilities. 

The morning meeting starts at 8:30 AM where we find out what needs to be done that day.  We suggest you bring  work gloves and appropriate clothing for the day, gumboots make a fashion statement!    Volunteers can be at work from 2 to 4 hours depending on the time of year.
