Volunteer - Summer 2017

 

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.
