Bird Sign Installation


Volunteers are needed to post signs on Virginia Coast Reserve barrier islands notifying visitors about important bird nesting and resting areas.

Commitment: One day minimum.

This is physical work requiring the ability to ride in a boat to the islands, carry signs on the beach and use a post-hole digger. Conservancy staff will accompany the volunteer(s).

The work will be completed from about April 10 – April 30. Schedule will be made depending on volunteer interest and availability and staff schedules. A follow up email listing exact dates will come in early April—only to those volunteers who express interest now. Work typically takes place during the week.

If interested please contact Jen Dalke, volunteer program manager, at or 540-335-1302 (c).
