The Town of Seabrook Island is seeking volunteers to support its 2019 Dolphin Education Program. The organizational “kickoff” meeting will be held between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at SIPOA’s Oyster Catcher Community Center (2241 Oyster Catcher Court). We have invited the Dolphin Program volunteers from Kiawah Island to join us so we can learn from their personal experiences on the other side of the Captain Sams Inlet and meet new friends. Attending this meeting does not commit you, but will give you information on volunteering for the program.
Lauren Rust of the Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network (LMMN) will once again lead the town's program in 2019. During the meeting, Ms. Rust will present the goals and objectives of the program and then lead a walk to the inlet of about 1.3 miles. Individuals who are interested in volunteering in 2019 are encouraged to participate. Bring your sunscreen, binoculars (if you have them) and a camera in case the dolphins are strand feeding on the low tide!
This year, we will provide a permanent storage box on site at Captain Sams Inlet to hold supplies, chairs and umbrellas for the volunteers. Participants in the program will be present on the beach each day to monitor and educate, but will not be serving as code enforcement officers (code enforcement is the responsibility of the town's Beach Patrol).
So that we can be sure to accommodate everyone, please confirm your attendance to Lauren Rust at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you cannot attend the first meeting, please contact Ms. Rust and she will add your name to the list of volunteers and provide training onsite at the Inlet. We welcome those who have limited availability over the summer and fall.
