Ways to volunteer
Special Events—Our two main events—Bald Eagle Bash and Alabama Coastal BirdFest—require lots of helping hands. From setting up and tearing down to collecting tickets, serving drinks or selling merchandise, helping at an event can be both fun and rewarding. Other events, such as floating marine debris cleanups and the Alabama Coastal Cleanup, put you squarely in the middle of conservation.
Outdoor Restoration—Protecting land requires hands-on work. From pulling invasive plants or working at a prescribed burn to building trails and planting trees, restoration work offers instant gratification. Training is required—and rewarding!
SALT Ambassador—We love getting involved with the community by attending events such as Earth Day Mobile Bay, Delta Woods and Water Expo at Five Rivers Delta Resource Center, and so much more! We usually have a booth set up with information, activities, and merchandise. Ambassadors helping at our booth are always appreciated! An overview about SALT will be conducted before events.
Clerical/Office—A lot goes on behind the scenes at South Alabama Land Trust. There are envelopes to be stuffed and stamped, merchandise to inventory, package and mail, and data to be checked and entered into our office systems. Volunteers will work on an as-needed basis, and will require a modest amount of training.
Guides— Guided paddles, nature walks, and birding tours are a few of the outdoor outreach activities we host. We reach out to a diverse and knowledgeable array of experts that know about anything from Bald Eagles to mushrooms. Are you an expert in a field such as botany or birds? Let us know!
