Volunteers are critical to the expanding work of Friends of Goose Pond. We are always seeking individuals interested in helping with our activities.
Thank you in advance for your willingness to help support our efforts to promote and maintain Goosepond Fish and Wildlife Area!
Listed below are short descriptions of some of the most frequent volunteer opportunities. If you wish to be contacted when volunteers are needed, please email us your information at www.friendsofgoosepond.org
Tour Guides: FoGP is often asked to provide tours of the property. A training program will be developed to help those interested in guiding tours to develop an appropriate presentation.
Chaperones: Numerous schools are using GPFWA as an outdoor learning laboratory. Volunteers are needed during these outings to help ensure the experience is meaningful and educational. A short orientation prior to the outing is provided to help the chaperones understand the learning outcomes of the session.
Volunteer Coordinator: As the need and response for volunteers increases it will be necessary to have one volunteer designated to help coordinate and match volunteers with activities. This position can be completed from home with the use of a telephone and e-mail.
Promotion Volunteers: Volunteers are often needed to help promote Friends of Goose Pond at a variety of venues. This can include staffing a booth at a local event, helping to sell calendars at local craft fairs.
Board Member: Occasionally volunteers are needed to complete vacancies on the Friends of Goose Pond Board. The Goose Pond Board of Directors is a volunteer organization that meets monthly to determine the scope of activities of the organization. Board Members should be committed to the Mission of Friends of Goose Pond, and able to spend 5-7 hours a month on FoGP Activities.
Hunting Volunteer: Many youth hunts and firearms trainings for youth are conducted on the property. Volunteers are always needed for these events to help ensure a safe and fun experience for our youth hunters.
Welcome Center: As GPFWA grows, we hope to have a designated Welcome Center.
