The Memorial Day holiday is quickly approaching, and Bird Stewards are needed to help protect the coasts' Least Tern colonies. We can expect large crowds on the beaches throughout the week, so any time spent educating the public will help the birds.

Volunteer Bird Stewards help ensure beachgoers do not enter fragile nesting areas and help educate visitors about the remarkable species that rely on Mississippi's shores for survival. Interested individuals should like spending time on the beach and interacting with the public. This is a family friendly volunteer opportunity with the flexibility to choose your day, time and location. See you at the beach!
