Do you want to help out at a SoundWaters community event? Want to work on an environmental clean-up project? Need to fulfill your community service requirement? We would love to have your help at SoundWaters. Here are some of the volunteer opportunities throughout the year:
Coastal Cleanup: Fall 2020: October 25
Our coastline is one of our most precious resources and all of us must chip in to keep it pristine. SoundWaters is leading the charge, but needs everyone’s help. We host seasonal clean-up days when we will provide you with gloves and bags to walk the public shoreline and pick up human debris. We weigh and catalog everything collected before disposing of it in the appropriate manner. Coastal clean-ups are ideal for friends, families and teams. Learn more about Coastal Cleanups.
SoundGeneration – High School Interns

SoundWaters Flotilla: Saturday, July 10, 2021
SoundWaters’ newest community fundraising event will welcome hundreds of kayakers and paddle boarders to paddle from Cove Island on Stamford’s east side to Boccuzzi Park on Stamford Harbor on the west side. All participants will be raising money to support scholarships for students who otherwise would not be able to afford SoundWaters education programs. We need volunteers to help on planning committees and also on the day of the event – on land and on the water (boaters and advanced skill kayakers) for this colorful, fun and festive event. Learn more about Flotilla.
