Get involved

Inspired by our mission? Make it yours by volunteering. From greeting visitors and helping with events to removing invasive plants and participating in a floating clean-up, there’s a place for you to make a big difference.

Way 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!

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.

Weeks Bay Reserve Visitors Center—The Visitors Center is free and open to the public six days a week. Volunteers greet and engage with visitors, and encourage them to explore the Reserve trails and get involved with South Alabama Land Trust. A wonderful way to share your love of the environment!

Weeks Bay Reserve Education Programs—The Weeks Bay Reserve conducts field trips for K-12 students, teaching them about estuaries and coastal ecology. The educators often need assistance with the larger groups, and would welcome your help.

Request to tour a property

Most of the properties we protect are not open to the public. Staff, however, would love to give you a tour and show you why and what you are helping us protect.
