Our volunteers will be our Park Ambassadors interacting with visitors and local residents as they arrive at the water taxi landings in Groton and New London. One responsibility will be helping to take survey information from water taxi riders. The visitor surveys provide us with vital information that we use for our marketing, programming, and fundraising efforts. Our survey is a very brief questionnaire that water taxi riders can easily fill in themselves or answer for you to fill in.
Volunteers will also help us with providing visitors with information about the water taxis, the sites and events in the Park, directions, and with handing out brochures.
Volunteers should enjoy interacting with people, have good verbal communications, and like being outdoors and active. Riding the taxis is optional. Knowing the area is helpful but not necessary for survey intake. Training will be provided.
Volunteers are asked to sign up for 2- or 4-hours shifts Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Memorial weekend through mid-September. We ask for a minimum commitment of 8 hours during the season.
Our volunteer Park Photographers will take photos (preferably high resolution) for social media, public relations and our web site that highlight the Park as well as show people having a great time enjoying the water taxi and events at our partner locations (i.e. City Pier in New London, Hempstead Houses, Avery-Copp House, Fort Griswold, etc.). We are also interested in pictures or short videos of our water taxi tours or charters. Photography guidelines will be provided.
