Escape to Hurricane Island for a day! Our volunteer days offer wonderful opportunities to spend time on Hurricane, visit old friends and make new ones, and get involved with hands-on service projects in a beautiful setting.
It takes many hands and a ton of energy to keep Hurricane up and running! Projects abound, and our staff is small. Sometimes we need helping hands to make significant progress. This is where you come in! You don’t need to have any particular set of skills to participate, and we appreciate your help!
The day starts with everyone meeting our staff, and reviewing the task list for the day. There are activities for everyone: you might volunteer to help build a deck, paint a building, cut back brush on trails, or weed the garden. We love it when our youngest volunteers make lemonade deliveries!
We provide round-trip transportation from North Haven and Vinalhaven as needed and also from Rockland departing Journey’s End Marina at 8 a.m and returning at 5 p.m. Mid-day we take a break for a big communal lunch, and we always leave time for an ocean swim at the end of the day!
