Become a Volunteer

Are you interested in volunteering for the HSU MMSP? We ask that interns are willing to commit to 1 beach walk a week for at least a one year period. Some beach-walking experience and basic biological interest is preferred. We provide training sessions 3 times a year – typically during September, February and May. If you are interested in being contacted for the next training session, please contact Dr. Goley at
