Health & Safety Update

The health and safety of our volunteers is of utmost importance. Based on the guidance from the CDC and decisions made with the Hog Island Audubon Staff, we will no longer require volunteers to be vaccinated for COVID-19 or to mask in buildings or vehicles. To protect campers, staff, instructors, and volunteers, strict health and safety guidelines will still be followed if a camper, staff, or volunteer exhibits sickness during their visit to Hog Island.

BEFORE you sign up to be a volunteer, please read Audubon’s Camper Guidelines. These policies are also expected of FOHI volunteers, and are subject to change if necessary. Volunteers will be notified if changes are made.

Over the course of the next few months, we will be transitioning to electronic volunteer forms for next summer.
