Volunteering
Scheduled projects at Tampa Bay Watch

We couldn’t accomplish any of our restoration or education goals without the help of our active volunteer base! Volunteers of all ages from children to retirees help in habitat restoration projects, lend a hand at our annual fundraisers, and represent our organization at community events to increase awareness. In 2019, approximately 2,000 volunteers from corporate groups, families, individuals, and more helped us accomplish our mission. Still have questions? Click here!

Upcoming events:

Mid-Summer Cleanup: Saturday, July 10 from 9 AM - Noon

Join us for our mid-summer community cleanup in partnership with the City of St. Petersburg at Booker Creek Park and Grandview Park. This event is an effort to clean up after the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

We’re very excited to open our projects back up to the community! Our team will do our best to implement social distancing practices to keep all volunteers safe and comfortable throughout the event. We do request all participants who have not been vaccinated to please wear a mask and take all social distancing precautions for the safety of our staff and other volunteers.

Discovery Center Volunteers Needed

Tampa Bay Watch seeks volunteers ages 16 and over for our new Discovery Center located on the new St. Pete Pier. Docents/volunteers are needed to give facility tours, answer questions, and monitor the exhibits and touch tanks.  Familiarity with coastal ecosystems is helpful but not required. A passion for the environment is highly desired. For more information, contact Madison Linville, Guest Service Lead, at mlinville@tampabaywatch.org

Be the face of Tampa Bay Watch!

Tampa Bay Watch regularly seeks outreach volunteers to represent our organization at community events such as MarineQuest and Ribfest. As an outreach volunteer, you’ll talk to people who come up to our display to find out more about our mission, our restoration projects, youth education, and volunteer and membership opportunities.
