Non-profit groups could not survive without the help of volunteers, and the Coastal Bays Program is no exception. We need volunteers for various activities throughout the year, including our Osprey Triathlon, Earth Day Cleanup, Maryland Coast Day and many other assorted opportunities that come up. If you are in need of community service hours, let us know and we'll try to help you!
We're are currently working on removing tree cages and bag worms at the Lizard Hill restoration project. If you are interested in assisting with this activity please contact Amanda at

Reel in and Recycle Project Leader
Maryland Coastal Bays has been taking part in a Boat US Foundation program called “Reel in and Recycle.” Through this program we received a few containers designed as disposal mechanisms for fishing line. By placing these containers at popular fishing locations, Maryland Coastal Bays is working to keep fishing lines out of the water and off of the land.
MCBP needs help maintaining these by emptying the containers monthly and boxing the line up to send to Berkley Recycling in Iowa. The volunteer must log information on the amount of line collected on that certain day.
This is a great opportunity to get outdoors and become an asset to the Maryland Coastal Bays Program. We can’t protect our watershed without you!

Volunteering can even be as easy as looking out your window. If you spot a seal, you can report it HERE
