Newport Bay Conservancy

Due Date: 2025-06-20T21:00:00.000Z
To protect and preserve the Upper Newport Bay through education, restoration, research and advocacy. We encourage anyone willing to support the Bay. If you, your family, friends, coworkers have a couple hours to give back each year, there are plenty of restoration projects that could use the extra hands. Many organizations proclaim that their people are their greatest asset. For NBC this is resoundingly true. Our passionate and talented volunteers have contributed well over 120,000 hours of volunteer service at Upper Newport Bay. We are grateful for the enthusiasm and commitment of our roughly 200 trained volunteers. About every other month we do an orientation/training that examines the general ecology of the Bay and the many ways to get involved. The opportunities are endless; from helping with kayak and outrigger tours, staffing the interpretive center, helping with special events, assisting with restoration projects and leading school groups. Once one day training course is completed, volunteers are eligible to attend a 12-week Naturalist training course starting every September. These Naturalists become leaders in conducting the Bay’s programs. Volunteer Opportunities Whether you are drawn to people or nature, to the indoors or outdoors, there is a volunteer niche for you at Upper Newport Bay! We have opportunities for those who just want to help out for a couple hours and those interested in committing on a regular basis. NBC Naturalists and Associates have contributed over 130,000 hours of documented volunteer service conducting water and walking tours, school and scout programs, hands-on restoration and cleanups, and a myriad of other activities. We couldn’t accomplish anywhere near as much as we do without our volunteers! Check out our 3 levels of volunteering below to see where you fit.
