There is always something for the keen eye of a photographer here at the Sanctuary. The varied habitats, the education programs, and volunteer projects provide many opportunities to capture a variety of images.
Volunteer photographers use their own equipment and should contact us to make arrangements for photographing events and for photo submissions.
Stream Photographer Needed:
Volunteer(s) are needed to document changes over time along our three study streams. Volunteers commit to visiting several sites along each stream a minimum of once every 3 months to capture seasonal variations, and in addition, visit as needed after rainstorms of 1-inch or more to document flood damage. The volunteer(s) also upload and label the images through our Flickr account.
- Landscape scenes - the boardwalks, decks, benches, and observation blinds offer many locations to capture changes over time
- Wildlife - from crawling beetles to soaring eagles, we welcome images for research and education purposes
- Plants - our land consists of forests, meadows, and wetlands; within these habitats are hundreds of plant species, many of which we have no photographic record for.
- See our plant and animal species lists for more information.
- Public programs - volunteers and staff lead participants on hikes and other educational tours year-round
- Schools & Scouts - in the spring, summer and fall, students participate in field trips, camps, and other programs
- Canoe trips - in the spring, summer and fall, participants are guided through the marsh using our fleet of canoes
Our research programs are one of our most popular volunteer activities; from turtle tracking, to water chemistry measurements, volunteers are out in the field year-round. We are always in need of current photo-documentation for education and training purposes. Visit our research page to see the schedule, and help us document our citizen science.
