Volunteer Opportunities

We really appreciate our volunteers, some of whom come to the hatchery every day and some come along when they can – once a week or once a month. We are there every Saturday from 9.00 am to 11.30 am and welcome everyone to come and say hello and see what we do. We ask volunteers to become a member, for as little as $5 a year so that you are covered by insurance.
