Volunteer Opportunities

Coastal Cleanup Day -- Saturday, September 17

Baykeeper is hosting our annual beach cleanup to target the serious marine debris problem that disproportionately affects San Francisco's eastern shoreline. California Coastal Cleanup Day is the state's largest single effort to remove the debris that has accumulated on beaches and inland shorelines over the past year, bringing tens of thousands of volunteers out annually to protect the marine wildlife and habitat that can be badly damaged by marine debris. All ages welcome at this family-friendly event.
Saturday, September 17, 9am to Noon
India Basin Shoreline Park, San Francisco

Database Volunteer

San Francisco Baykeeper is seeking a volunteer to assist with the upkeep of our member database. The Database Volunteer plays an important role in keeping our records organized and up-to-date, enabling Baykeeper to efficiently and effectively work to stop pollution in San Francisco Bay.

Projects include:

  • Ensuring that member information is accurate and up-to-date.
  • Data cleaning: merge duplicate records, reorganize information to create consistent documentation, update outdated addresses, and more.
  • Documenting recent interactions with members.

Skills in Microsoft Excel and a general technological adeptness preferred. Prior database experience is helpful but not necessary.

The ideal volunteer will be available to come into our office approximately 4 hours a week during regular office hours. Dates and hours are flexible depending on your availability.

Email Maya Wolf at maya@baykeeper.org to pursue this volunteer opportunity.

Thank you for your interest and your support of a clean and healthy San Francisco Bay.
