Here are some details:
- Volunteer must be able to navigate tricky surfaces as much of the island is rocky (very rocky) and be physically able to get onto a boat, walk long distances, and work outdoors doing manual labor - digging, moving things, lifting buckets of gravel.
- Work will happen from 9am until about 3pm.
- Volunteers must bring lunch, water, wear sturdy boots, and be willing to work in an environment where they might encounter poison ivy (more often than not).
This is a great opportunity to see Falkner Island and visit the second oldest lighthouse in Connecticut. She will bring the lighthouse keys so that volunteers can climb to the top. The group will be leaving from Guilford, CT.
