Volunteer for SMC


Visitors ont he boardwalk at Blue Spring State Park.

"It was a very, very busy event," says Club volunteer, Katelyn Wright, of the recent Orlando Wetlands Festival, held at Fort Christmas Park in Christmas, Florida. Katelyn and Heather Murphy (l-r in photo) staffed the Club's education table at the event, which has become one of the largest wetlands festivals in the nation, according to the Exhibitor Manager. Festival-goers visited various habitats on guided tours, and had the opportunity to learn about Florida's wildlife at all the great environmental booths, including manatees, at Save the Manatee Club's booth.


We Need Volunteers!

You can help Save the Manatee Club by becoming a Club volunteer. SMC volunteers staff tables at manatee-related events, engage in speaking presentations, help out in the SMC offices, write letters and send e-mails on issues of concern to manatees, and report information to manatee researchers. You can make a difference for manatees!

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our Online Volunteer Application.

For those wishing to inquire about earning community service hours at the Club's office in Maitland, Florida, please do not fill out the Online Volunteer Application form. For eligibility and availability, contact Janice Nearing, the Club's Volunteer Activities Coordinator, at jnearing@savethemanatee.org or call 407-539-0990.
