2016 was a busy summer on Eagle Island, VOLUNTEERS spent days, weekends and in some cases weeks on the island working on a variety of projects.
What’s been happening during the winter months?
- Engineers are designing the water, septic and electrical plans.
- Historic Preservation Architects prepared a "Condition Assessment" that includes work prioritization.
- Estimates from contractors for larger projects are being evaluated as start a busy 2017.
How can I help in 2017?
There is plenty of work for unskilled and enthusiastic volunteers. If you have a particular skill like carpentry, plumbing, electrical or masonry we have a number of projects that require those skills as well.
This appeal is for individual assistance and not a formal work weekend. Accommodations for volunteers on the island will be extremely limited due to many basic limitations the primary of which is that there will be NO running water yet (port-o-johns and bottled water are provided)
(Must be 14 years old and accompanied by parent/guardian to participate)
