Docent
Our Docent Program is available to volunteers who would like to share their love of birds with visitors to Save Our Seabirds. It’s for individuals who would enjoy speaking to visitors as they walk around our bird sanctuary and telling them about:
  • our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and release injured birds
  • details about the particular bird species
  • how specific birds were injured
No experience in being a guide or birder is necessary. If this is something that would interest you and you can devote one afternoon per week (or more if you so choose) please download the volunteer form and highlight your interest in becoming a docent. Then SOS will contact you and put you in touch with our Docent Coordinator for a personalized tour along with written information about our mission and the specific resident birds that we have at SOS.
