VOLUNTEERING AT TAMPA BAY WATCH
Volunteers are the lifeblood of Tampa Bay Watch! They accomplish restoration and protection activities we could never afford hired staff to complete. Youth and adult volunteers are involved each year in a variety of hands-on habitat restoration projects such as oyster dome construction, oyster shell bar installation, salt marsh plantings and coastal cleanups to help the bay recover from its devastating environmental problems. Volunteers of all ages participate in our projects. Our coastal cleanups and salt marsh plantings are family-friendly and open to all ages. If you would like to be kept informed of our numerous volunteer opportunities, complete our online registration so you will receive our weekly email message which advertises our upcoming environmental restoration projects.

Be the Change, Sea the Change - Coastal Cleanup
This summer’s event is a DIY “Do it yourself” Coastal Cleanup! We want to encourage YOU to hit those places in YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD where you’ve noticed sadly forgotten or misplaced trash. We welcome everyone in the Tampa Bay region to participate. Please help spread the word by inviting your friends and family to join!
How will we know when and where you clean up? Your cleanup efforts can take place on any day within the month of July. On June 30, we will send all registered volunteers a link. This link will open a survey created by Tampa Bay Watch on any smartphone or tablet device. You and your group will fill out the short survey during your cleanup, click submit, and the data will be sent directly to Tampa Bay Watch.
A big thank you to our funders, SeaWorld Busch Gardens Conservation Fund for their continued support and for making this cleanup month possible!
