Want to be the Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, John Muir or Terry Tempest-Williams of Pocomoke River State Park? If so, become a Digital Volunteer, and work closely, through email, with Pocomoke’s naturalists as they write, edit, and develop Pocomoke’s quarterly E-Newsletter. To see an example of the paddler click here (see attached Paddler).
Help the naturalists of Pocomoke educate the campers in Shad Landing’s Nature Center! As a Volunteer Naturalist you will help staff and maintain the nature center and help park staff with educational programs. If you like, you can also help develop and implement interpretive programs! Before you begin interpreting at Pocomoke you need to attend a shore training session given by park staff.
Have experience working with animals? Help care for the raptors and reptiles of the Scales & Tales program! After the proper training given by park staff, you will be able to help feed the animals, and help maintain their facilities. Once you have completed 20 service hours of care and maintenance you may be trained in animal handling, and if you like, help with programs involving these animals.
Have a knack for working with your hands and would like to see Pocomoke River State Park at its best? Then become a ‘Maintain Pocomoke’ Volunteer! Just like your home, there is always something that needs a spring cleaning or a little fixer up-er here at the park. If you have the time, experience, and desire please help with the general maintenance of Pocomoke River State Park.
Enjoy talking to people and their families? Want to be involved with their camping experience at Pocomoke? If your answers are yes, then helping in the camp store of the Shad Landing Area of Pocomoke River State Park would be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! The staff at Pocomoke can always use an extra hand with registering campers, answering telephones, restocking store shelves, and providing general information to the public. We appreciate all of the help and experience you can provide, but before you start you need to attend a short training session given by park staff.
